More Description

Originating as Greer's Station, a burgeoning settlement on the edge of an antebellum plantation, Greer prospered as a link in the cotton belt of the South. Agricultural hub and industrial powerhouse, the town flourished along the railroad and gained prominence as a bustling trading post. Greer has braved market manipulation, commercial competition, and agricultural decimation, but strives even today to preserve the continuity of its community identity.
