Located 20 minutes from downtown Greenville, Simpsonville has the feel of a small town with some big city amenities, including a 15,000-seat amphitheater.
The city’s downtown also sets it apart from other communities with a working railroad line running along Main Street, dividing the thoroughfare into two corridors. On the west side of the tracks is Simpsonville’s iconic brick clock tower. Built in 1986, it’s a more modern version of the classic Southern clock tower.
Once a stagecoach stop, Simpsonville traces its history to 1838 when a farmer named Peter Simpson established a blacksmithing shop at the intersection of what was the Old Stage Road and Cherokee Trail. The crossroads eventually became known as Simpsonville.
Simpsonville also offers plenty of recreational amenities with two golf courses, a bowling alley and skating center, and four city parks offering ballfields, batting cages, a sensory playground, disc golf, tennis courts and much more. It’s no wonder Family Circle Magazine named Simpsonville one of the Ten Best Towns for Families in South Carolina.
