Fort Mill, SC – Community That Early on Embraced Concept of Work/Life Balance

From its’ inception, Fort Mill, SC is a town that has survived and thrived because of its’ sense of community.  Back in the 1880s, Captain Sam White, a minister, doctor, business owner and visionary, proposed that Ft. Mill needed an industrial plant to bolster its’ farm- based economy.  He believed a textile mill would help the farmers by buying their cotton and providing jobs in the community for people who wanted and needed to work.

He offered to donate the land on which that mill would be built.  In addition, Captain White suggested that the town would benefit further if stock in the mill could be sold to as many local citizens as might be financially capable of investing.  This textile mill, which was named Fort Mill Manufacturing, within the next century would become Springs Industries with 42 plants in 12 states and employing over 23,000 people.

Decades later, Captain Sam White’s grandson, Colonel Elliott Springs, took over leadership of the company when his father, Colonel Leroy Springs, died.  By the late 1940s, Colonel Elliott Springs , as his grandfather before him, saw another need in the community.  He summed this need up by saying “ Fort Mill people know how to work.  I have watched them for years. Now, I want to teach them how to play”

True to his word, he began with the construction of a 9 hole golf course (later expanded into an 18 hole championship course).  A clubhouse was added with a swimming pool, bowling lanes, skating rink and shuffleboard courts.  What started as this clubhouse eventually grew into the multi-million dollar Leroy Springs Recreation Complex which in 2018 was donated to the Upper Palmetto YMCA and is now the Fort Mill YMCA.

Ft Mill celebrates a rich heritage of honoring hard work while providing a sought after quality of life. Continuing today, work and play are intentional and nearby.

The Anne Springs Close Greenway, Kingley, and the Catawba River are some of Fort Mill’s “playgrounds”.  If you lived here, it would be yours, too.

Downtown Belmont coffee shop makes a new home in an old train station

Categories: Belmont | Posted: March 1, 2019 | Comments Off on Downtown Belmont coffee shop makes a new home in an old train station

Our friends at the Charlotte Five captured just what Downtown Belmont is all about in this post about Mugshots Coffee.  (This is another reason why we love Belmont NC and because we love coffee!)

Last time I met with Reuben Silberman, his coffee shop Mugshots was in a tiny space on Main Street in downtown Belmont. There was barely room for four people, and those people better have been comfortable with each other. Space was tight.

Two years later, Mugshots has outgrown its small quarters. It moved this week to an old train station, built in the early 1900s. The new space is a few blocks from the original location and in the center of downtown Belmont. The coffee shop has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. It boasts 16-foot high ceilings and large windows. Bicycle-themed decor, an open layout and the friendly staff make for a relaxed vibe. MORE

Live nearby and enjoy Mugshots Coffee everyday!  New Home Nearby McLean Overlake
