GREER: Past in Pictures the first 75 years


Past in Pictures


Witness the birth and evolution of Greer, South Carolina, a historic town nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. From the cotton-scented days of the 19th century to the modern pulse of an automotive-driven economy, Greer’s tale is one of endurance, transformation, and the undying spirit that defines a community. This book invites you to see the town’s growth through vintage photographs capturing the essence of its early history. These pictures are a testament to the town’s spirit and resilience, a tribute to its pioneers, and a celebration of the rich cultural tapestry woven by its residents.

What to expect:

  • Large, full-color hardbound coffee-table book celebrates the spirit and sacrifice of the people who built the town we love today.
  • Compelling narrative unfolds through each carefully selected photograph.
  • New and restored photographs capture the essence of Greer’s early years, a tribute to our community’s enduring spirit and rich history.

The author, David Lovegrove, is the director of the Greer Heritage Museum and a leading expert on early Greer history. The introduction is by Leland Burch, former editor of the Greer Citizen and author of several books about Greer including Greer, SC — the Center of the Universe.
