Sometimes we think that Sandy Springs is the center of the Atlanta metropolitan area (or even the country!).  With all the great amenities in the area, who could think otherwise! 

In fact, there is a Sandy Springs, South Carolina.  This little town (not an incorporated city) sits between Anderson and Clemson on U.S. Route 66.  It is in the northwest corner of South Carolina and has around 25,000 people. Unlike our own Georgia town, the SC sister is seeing a population decline.  A major historical feature that surrounds the city is that Sandy Springs, SC, was the home to the first African-American soldier to receive the Medal of Honor.  Freddie Stowers charged a German machine gun emplacement during World War I and was gunned down and killed while leading the way for his men.  Now that is a real hero and too bad he did not hail from Sandy Springs, Georgia. 

Let me know if you know of any other Sandy Springs in the U.S.
