Located in the picturesque foothills in the Upstate region of South Carolina, Greer enjoys a distinguished past, from its days as a hallowed hunting ground for local Cherokees, to its settlement by hardy and adventurous pioneering families in the 1700’s, to the advent of the railroad in the 1800’s. Today, Greer possesses a rare combination of small-town charm with big-city opportunities, attracting a wide variety of businesses and people from across the country and the world.

The area now known as Greer was once part of the “Domain of the Cherokees” prior to the Revolutionary War. In 1777, the area was added to the State of South Carolina. Development toward the birth of the town occurred in 1873 when the Richmond and Danville Air Line Railway (now the CSX Railway) established a line between Atlanta and Charlotte. A station was built on land that belonged to James Manning Greer, and was named Greer’s Station. The first post office was located in the new depot, Greer’s Depot. When the town was incorporated in 1876, it was named Town of Greer’s. One hundred years later, the name was officially changed to the City of Greer without an “s” on the end.
