Revolutionary? Why yes, we are.
You will see this theme repeated on this website and on your visit. Why? Because we were born of the American Revolution. The Spartan regiment rose up from the South Carolina backcountry to fight for independence. Fierce battles fought on our soil were a turning point in our nation’s struggle for freedom.
Today our lives revolve around our rich cultural offerings, our extensive educational opportunities, our musical heritage, our racing legacy, our food and the simple abundance of our stunning landscape. We are at the crossroads of all that is dynamic about the modern South as we continue to evolve and change the course of history. We are Spartanburg, South Carolina. Revolutionary.
