Spartanburg County is the 4th largest county in the state of South Carolina. Its 2015 population estimate was just over 215,000. The area has temperate weather, hot summers, and mild winters much like the rest of the state.
The History of Spartanburg County
Its intriguing name is accredited to a militia unit, the Spartan Regiment, that fought in the American Revolutionary War. It was formerly a featured trading post but is most known as the site of two monumental battles fought during the Revolutionary War. Later on, the county came to be known as the “Hub City” due to the wheel hub shape of the area created by the railroad lines. Like most of the surrounding cities, its economic activity centered around the textile industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
After World War II, the area experienced a plethora of industrial growth in the areas of manufacturing and automobile production. Growth from this period of time still lifts up the community today, and its positive effects can be observed by healthy employment rates in these industries.
