South Carolina is a southeastern U.S. state known for its shoreline of subtropical beaches and marshlike sea islands. Coastal Charleston is a historic city, defined by pastel-colored houses, Old South plantations and Fort Sumter, where the Civil War’s opening shots were fired. To the north is the Grand Strand, a roughly 60-mile stretch of beachfront known for golf courses and the vacation town Myrtle Beach.


The Anderson Motor Company built cars in Rocky Hill, South Carolina from 1916 to 1925. The Anderson was produced to be a direct competitor for Henry Ford’s Model T, but the company’s advertising slogan was, “A little bit higher in price, but made in Dixie.” They boasted high-quality trim and materials, like mahogany and leather, and colors like purple, blue and yellow; a stark contrast to Ford’s black. These features would set you back quite a bit for the time. You could buy a Ford for as little as $345 while a five-passenger Anderson touring car was $1,650 and a sedan was to $2,550.
