Named after the Spartan Regiment of the South Carolina Militia, Spartanburg thrives to be a progressive town, while also remembering and honoring its past.
Standing in the center of Morgan Square in the heart of downtown, is a statue of General Daniel Morgan, who led the American forces to a victory at the Battle of Cowpens. Today, General Morgan stands surrounded by a bustling city center with a variety of restaurants, businesses, and beautiful sculptures and fountains as well as bike paths.
Named as the first “Bicycle Friendly Community” in the state, Spartanburg is full of bike lanes and paths.
With nearly 50 sites and districts listed on the National Register, it is clear to see that Spartanburg has a history that it is proud of and continually works to preserve. Whether your interest is history, arts and culture, active living, or agri-tourism, Spartanburg has something for you!
