TRAVELERS REST, S.C. — Travelers Rest officials on Thursday held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new city hall and police department complex to be built adjoining Trailblazer Park.
Slated to cost an estimated $6 million, the approximately 17,000-square-foot complex includes city government offices, municipal court, council chambers, the police station, a public works building, and a visitor's center area.
