While the location is wide open for growth and industry has come to the area, people that have been employed here choose to commute from Florence. The list of reasons is too long to list. Dillon sure earned the spot they're at!

The key people in place will be the downfall of this small town. Such a shame.

I live in Dillon County, wouldn't live anywhere else. Any one who don't like SC. Don't have to live here.
