Morgan Square (Spartanburg Historic District)


Spartanburg SC 29306
Area: Spartanburg


Spartanburg's original public square dates from 1787, when this location was designated as the seat of the Spartan District, later Spartanburg County. After the establishment of the first courthouse and jail, businesses and taverns were built in lots bordering the square. Before long, Morgan Square was the thriving commercial and cultural hub of the community. Today's downtown retains many of the historic features present over a century ago, including the original town clock and the 1881 Daniel Morgan monument, from which the square derives its name. Many of the storefronts on the south side of the square date to the 1880's and the lush public park hosts gatherings throughout the year.
