One of my favorite less-traveled places is the town of Greenwood. Some of the most interesting people I know come from Greenwood, one of the last true textile towns in South Carolina. The town has held onto much of its early 20th century charm even though the mills don't hum like they used to. 

One of the best stops is the The Arts Center of Greenwood. The first time I stopped here, my jaw dropped. The former federal building has been renovated with large exhibit halls and floor to ceiling windows that provide great light. Just a couple of years after it opened, the center was awarded the state's highest art honor, the Elizabeth O'Neill Verner Governor's Award for the Arts in recognition of outstanding contributions to the arts in South Carolina.

The Arts Center of Greenwood is located at 120 Main St. It includes a clay studio, seven artist studios, a professional art gallery, a couryard garden, classrooms and a visitor center. To learn more, call (864) 388-7800 or click here.
