Lifestyle and Attractions
Fountain Inn got its unique name from an old inn with a fountain that once existed in town, attracting travelers on stagecoach journeys between Greenville and the South Carolina Low Country. Fountain Inn is a quiet place to live. It exemplifies a typical small Southern town with a quaint downtown and tight-knit community. The population just under 8,000 is small enough to help residents know their neighbors and feel established amongst the community. Fountain Inn is called the “Diamond Tip of the Golden Strip”, as it is the southernmost town of the three cities making up the Golden Strip, a 9-mile length of I-385.
Fountain Inn residents and visitors frequent the charming downtown area with local boutiques, restaurants and other small businesses. They may learn about area history at the Fountain Inn Museum, or visit a number of historic sites in town, including the Robert Quillen Office and Library and the Peg Leg Bates Statue. Fountain Inn hosts more than four miles of walking trails and six public parks, totaling 50 acres of land, which exceeds the national recreational standard for a city of its size. The community comes together with a number of annual events and festivals, including the Fountain Inn Farmers’ Market during the summer and Aunt Het Day, an old-fashioned family festival in October.

Although Fountain Inn was officially chartered in 1886, its name appears on stagecoach routes as early as 1832. The town’s unique name is derived from a natural spring and an inn that were once located near the road between Greenville and Laurens in the early 19th century. Today, the city is the only town in the country with the name Fountain Inn. After the Civil War, a South Carolinian named Noah Cannon purchased the land now known as Fountain Inn and opened a store. Much like other nearby towns, the introduction of the railroad brought prosperity to this quaint town in the mid-to-late 1800s.
At the time of the area’s textile boom by 1890, Fountain Inn had a population of 500 people. Cotton became the crop of choice towards the end of the 19th century, and Fountain Inn transformed into a mill town. Fountain Inn was the hometown of two famous people, including Clayton “Peg Leg” Bates who lost his leg in a cotton gin accident and later grew up to be a famous tap dancer who performed with Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. The other is journalist and humorist Robert Quillen, who moved to town and served as editor of The Fountain Inn Tribute until his death in 1948.
