Message From The Mayor
Welcome to Batesburg-Leesville!
The economic and emotional impact of the pandemic and crisis in the Ukraine is currently being felt by all of us. May we continue to look out for one another in our community who may be in need.
In B-L we have two unique historic downtown business districts which are anchored by small businesses as well as a growing “mid-section” which are providing an additional economic foundation to our managed growth. This Spring, please come and enjoy a visit for BBQ, a crafted coffee, and treasure shopping!
