Una, SC

Una is part of the Una-Saxon-Arcadia, or USA, area that borders the city of Spartanburg. Una has a post office with ZIP code 29378, which opened on November 14, 1928. The Una Community Fire Department was created in 1959 through the Una Water District. In 1988, Spartanburg Water acquired Una Water. It was a Railroad settlement with a railroad yard (Hayne).

Arcadia was founded in 1902, and was so named for a fancied resemblance of its landscapes to the ancient region of Arcadia. Arcadia Mill Number Two was built on W. Cleveland St in 1922 by Dr. Henry Arthur Ligon (1856-1925)., a local pharmacist and banker who went into the textile business with Arcadia Mill Number One in 1902 located on Hayne St. He would also take over the mills at Woodruff and Mills Mill in Greenville during the 1920s. The mills were sold to NY cotton businessman, Joshua L. Baily. Knowing he could hire cheaper labor in the South, he moved his northern business South. He renamed Arcadia Mill Number One to Mayfair Mill and Arcadia Mill Number Two was renamed Bailey Mill. The mill production closed in 2001 in bankruptcy.

Here are some maps and satellite views of the area.








The Saxon Mill was organized in 1902 under the leadership of John Adger Law, a Sptbg banker. Built on Front Street. In 1945 it was sold to Reeves Bros and then, in 1964, to Phillips Fibers Co. Phillips Fibers, Phillips Petroleum Co. of Bartlesville, OK, headquartered in Greenville, S.C., makes non-woven materials used in home furnishings and other consumer and industrial applications. Amoco Fabrics and Fibers Co. bought it in 1993.

The Saxon Mill was primarily owned by "Old Man Law."  Mr. Law lived in the largest house in the village, hardly more than a block from the church. The church was within a block of the mill office. Saxon Mill owned all the houses in the village.  At a bulk rate the mill bought electricity and gas for the whole village from the power company and resold it to each household or user.  Neither the Baptist nor the Methodist churches ever received a bill for electricity, gas, or insurance.

Wilburn Philip Justice was born 11/13/1887 in Hendersonville, NC to Philip Britton Justice and Annie Cordelia Maxwell. Philip Britton Justice was listed as "Keeper of the poor" in the 1880 census. Afterwards he was either a farmer, worked at cotton mill or merchant of grocery store in the following censuses.

W.P. Justice married Una May Abbot who was born 12/25/1898 in Central, SC to Warren Turner Abbott and Caroline Elizabeth "Callie" Davis. They had 11 children. Warren Turner Abbot was listed as Engineer for Railroad in all the censuses after he moved to Spartanburg from Pickens.
