Hartsvillen Family YMCA
Building, growing, and thriving, the Hartsville Family YMCA was founded in 1985 as a storefront operation with one employee. By 1988, the Y moved into the historic Coker Department Store building in the heart of downtown. In 1998, a major expansion and renovation was completed resulting in a full facility YMCA that far exceeded the initial dreams.
