To the Mountaintop with the Founder of The Assault on Mt. Mitchell

By Brad Wright, produced in cooperation with the HubCity Writers Project. When it came to cycling, John Bryan was simply a Southern pioneer. In the 1970s, when the idea of a bicycle as a legitimate means of transportation was an afterthought at best, laughable at worst, he used his on his daily commute. It should be mentioned, however, that this was a commute between Spartanburg and Greenville. He was a foundin

Skating on the Square

By Rachel-Richardson, produced in cooperation with the HubCity Writers Project. I am not the most graceful of girls. My center of balance has yet to be found.

A stroll along downtown Spartanburg’s Morgan Square has many enticing options, one of the most exciting being a beloved Italian restaurant that was once located on East Kennedy Street. It was truly a special day when Renat

Triple Tree Aerodrome

By Brad Wright, produced in cooperation with the HubCity Writers Project. Updated for accuracy in May 2019. It’s a beautiful, early fall day as I make my way down Highway 221 to the Triple Tree Aerodrome near Woodruff. The sky is as clear as my expectations are hazy. I have never heard about this place in our community, yet it’s billed as the "Augusta National of Aviation.” I have no idea what I’m going to s
