Greer SC

Greer was named for James Manning Greer, whose family line follows from Scotland, through Ireland. Large numbers of his relatives actually live in the locale. James Manning Greer was a relative of John Greer Sr., who studied his territory in Laurens County in 1750. John and his family were at that point in Laurens County, preceding the Greer travelers who showed up on board the boat The Falls in 1764. John Greer's family settled at Duncans Creek between that Creek and the Enoree River and near Duncan's Creek Presbyterian Church. John, Sr's. extraordinary grandson James Manning Greer settled his family close to Greenville in a space that at last turned into Greer's Station.


Situated in the lower regions of the upstate district of South Carolina, Greer's set of experiences extends from its days as a hunting ground for neighborhood Cherokees, to its settlement by spearheading families during the 1700s, to the coming of the railroad during the 1800s.


The region presently known as Greer was once important for the "Area of the Cherokees" preceding the American Revolutionary War. In 1777, the region was added to the province of South Carolina. Improvement toward the introduction of the town happened in 1873, when the Richmond and Danville Air Line Railway (presently the Norfolk Southern Railway) laid out a line among Atlanta and Charlotte. A station was based ashore that had a place with James Manning Greer, and was named Greer's Station. The main mail center was situated in the new warehouse, Greer's Depot. That station was a red block, boink Victorian construction with a record rooftop and a vault. It was found promptly neighboring the ongoing Norfolk Southern rail line between Trade Street and Depot Street, pointing toward Moore Street. It was annihilated in 1976 by its then proprietor, the Southern Railway System, to keep away from local charges. At the point when the town was consolidated in 1876, it was named Town of Greer's. After 100 years, the name was authoritatively different to the City of Greer without an "s" on the end.


Dealers, smithies and doctors set up for business in what is presently the midtown area of Greer. In 1900, Greer's most memorable bank, the Bank of Greer's, opened. The Piedmont and Northern Railway laid a subsequent railroad line through Greer in 1914. With two dynamic train lines, Greer turned into an appealing site for trade. The rail route implied large business for nearby ranchers, empowering them to transport their yields, predominantly cotton and peaches, out of state. Greer likewise turned into a material assembling place, with prospering plants that included Victor, Franklin, Apalache and Greer Mills. The people group that grew up around the plants were essentially as affectionate as the peripheral cultivating networks.


In 1939, craftsman Winfred Walkley painted a painting, Cotton and Peach Growing, for the town's old mailing station as one of thirteen works dispatched by the U.S. Depository Department's Section of Fine Arts somewhere in the range of 1938 and 1941 for mail centers and government structures all through South Carolina.[8] The structure is currently home to the Greer Heritage Museum.
