Life’s pretty great here in Spartanburg. And it’s getting greater every day. Expanding. Evolving. Melding into a community that’s both rooted in the past and excited about the future. Back in the 19th century, Spartanburg was dubbed the Hub City because we were a railroad center. Today we’re the center of so much more – an arts revival, historic preservation, becoming an active lifestyle city – the list goes on.
Upon first glance, you’ll see that Spartanburg is a beautiful city with southern charm. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, our moderate climate encourages year-round tourism. History buffs enjoy Cowpens National Battlefield, which marks the site where Gen. Daniel Morgan’s troops defeated the British. We’re home to international businesses like BMW Manufacturing Corporation, Milliken & Co., QS/I, Extended Stay America and Denny’s Corporation. And our new Chapman Cultural Center is just one of the many performing arts venues here. [From Spartanburg Chamber of Commerce]
