Our current place of residence is Lancaster, SC. Forbes named Lancaster as the top “Main St.” to be hit by the economic crisis.
It has been a shock to move from thriving Indy to dying Lancaster. What the article doesn’t mention is another factor that promotes Lancaster’s decline; that is, the deeply ingrained “good ol’ boy” society and racism. With that mentality, growth is difficult to achieve when the town is unwelcoming to outsiders and skin color (either side is equally guilty).
