Improvements at the Gracie S. Floyd Event Center at McFall’s Landing

ANDERSON, SC, 3/13/23 – Anderson County is pleased to announce the completion of improvements at the Gracie S. Floyd Event Center at McFall’s Landing. The project included access improvements to the courtesy docks and patio extension with a decorative concrete finish. As part of the effort, a wooden fence was removed and replaced by decorative boulders, complementing the building’s rock façade. Two eight-foot matching benches were installed on the event center’s patio.

In addition, a very special park bench has been donated to the facility by Anderson School District 5. This bench was custom-crafted by Anderson Institute of Technology’s Machine Tool and Welding Department and presented in memory of the Honorable Gracie S. Floyd, former Anderson County Educator and Councilwoman

The bench has been installed on the center dock between the two boat ramps, creating the setting for a truly magnificent vista. All site furnishings at McFall’s Landing are now oriented towards the lake, an arrangement that lets visitors enjoy the beauty of Broadway Lake from the very facility that Councilwoman Floyd worked tirelessly to make available as a unique and memorable venue for the community.

Since opening in November 2009, the Gracie S. Floyd Event Center at McFall’s Landing has been rented almost every weekend for birthdays, graduation, anniversary parties, baby showers, family reunions, celebrations of life and weddings.
