Living in Spartanburg, SC
Spartanburg has a storied history due to its pivotal role in the Revolutionary and Civil wars. The area saw several battles between American patriots and the British when South Carolina was still a colony. Shortly after the war, a settlement was formed and the town was named Spartanburg after the Spartan regiment that fought at the beginning of the war.
After the settlement grew considerably, the town was incorporated into a city in 1831 and became known as the "Hub City" due to the wheel shape that railroads gave it when they traveled into the area.
At the turn of the century, Spartanburg became known as one of the major textile centers in the South. In 1917, there were more than 20,000 inhabitants that flooded the city in search of work, many of them seeking city life outside of the mountains. Spartanburg's growth is also attributed to its rural outposts that were a desirable location for National Guard cantonments. Today, Spartanburg's past comes alive in its historical downtown architecture, but still looks forward to its promising future.
