Spartanburg, South Carolina

Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Spartanburg is the second largest city in the upstate region of South Carolina and has a population of approximately 40,000. For many years, the Carolina Piedmont region was inhabited by Catawba and Cherokee tribes before being settled by European settlers and becoming an incorporated city in 1831. Spartanburg is thought to have been named after the Spartan regiment of the South Carolina Militia.

By the turn of the century, Spartanburg was known as "Hub City" due to the number of railroads that converged in town. Dozens of cotton mills were built during this time and soon, the textile industry dominated local economy. Spartan Mills, Saxon Mills, Drayton Cotton Mill, and Deering Milliken Mills were among local textile manufacturers. World War II brought 200,000 men to Spartanburg for training at Camp Croft, which was located just south of the city. Many of the Army recruits later settled in the area and added to Spartanburg's population growth. Today, Spartanburg is a bustling business city and is home to sizeable organizations such as Advance America, Milliken & Company, and BMW.
