History

This small town located in the northern part of Greenville County began as a place where settlers arriving in Conestoga wagons would stop on their way through the mountains. Drovers from Kentucky and Tennessee on their way to South Carolina markets passed through Travelers Rest in the 1800s, along with their herds of cattle, sheep and hogs. As a result, taverns and inns sprang up in this area to accommodate these travelers. Lodging business picked up even more throughout the 1800s, as travelers continued to arrive by train after the introduction of the railroad.

 

Travelers Rest was incorporated twice, first in 1891 until the incorporation period expired 30 years later, and again in 1891, after residents petitioned to incorporate the city under its existing name.
