Greenwood is the geographical, cultural and historical center of the railroad and mill town in upstate South Carolina that had its greatest period of growth and prosperity from 1890 to 1920.

Historic Buildings around Uptown are being preserved and rehabilitated. There is a special tax assessment for eligible rehabilitated historic properties. Take a look some projects:

Southern Tandem Rally 2019
- Date: -
- Location: Uptown Market
220 Maxwell Avenue
Greenwood, South Carolina 29649
Here’s what we have planned for the three days of the rally. It’s early, and we’ll update our social events as they become confirmed…
Thursday, September 19: Greenwood’s first brewery is scheduled to open on August 1st. If they get open in time, we hope to have a nice gathering there.
Friday, September 20: Our first ride of the weekend takes us north towards Due West, home of the historic buildings of Erskine College. On Friday night, we all scream for ice cream. Bruster’s is on the menu as we build our own sundaes at the Federal Building. Constructed in 1911, the Federal Building was given to the City of Greenwood in the late 1900’s and restored in 2006. Today it is the home of the Greenwood Visitor’s Center and has an art museum and a cozy courtyard where you can hang out if the weather is nice.
Saturday, September 21: Saturday takes us to Ninety Six, the site of the first battle in the south during the American Revolution. The battlefield is still there as well as the old fort. We’ll have a nice lunch spread for you at the Uptown Market, an outdoor facility just a couple of miles from the end of your ride. Saturday night, join us for the grand STR banquet at the Sundance Art Gallery. It’s sure to be a fabulous day.
Sunday, September 22: Today we ride to the Promised Land. Hallelujah and pass the cornbread!
