The City of Greer, SC: Past, Present & Future
Transportation and industry have always been big parts of the City of Greer's character. This thriving community was once a hunting and trapping ground for local Cherokees. The present city site is the location of a 200-acre farm referred to locally as the Old Blakely Place. The farm was owned by farmer James Manning Greer, whose name the City now bears. In 1873 the Richmond and Danville Air Line Railway pushed its tracks through the region, constructing a railway station on Greer's farm. Called logically enough Greer's Station, this railway depot would shortly after incorporate the area's first post office. In 1876, the State of South Carolina would incorporate the community as the Town of Greer's. The "s" was dropped from the name sometime early in the 20th Century.
Railway & Industry Helped Greer Prosper
The future of Greer was cast in iron, literally, when the Piedmont and Northern Railway laid a second rail line through the community in 1914. As an active rail nexus Greer became the logical distribution point for local farmers to get their products (primarily cotton and peaches) to market. The availability of quality cotton later helped turn the area into a busy textile manufacturing center, as a number of prosperous cotton mills flourished in the region for decades. Lower cost imported textiles helped bring that chapter of the city's business history to a close by the 1970s.
But the City of Greer was not one to let changing times derail its development. After the Second World War the area's role as a transportation hub grew even stronger - with the completion of the I-85 Interstate Highway and the opening of the Greenville - Spartanburg International Airport. Available transport and an educated workforce saw the development of manufacturing industries in the region, starting with the Homelite chainsaw factory in the 1950s. Today Greer is known internationally as home of the only BMW manufacturing plant in North America. One of the region's largest employers, the plant helps put Greer on the world commerce map and ensures continued prosperity for Greenville and Spartanburg counties.
