Named one of the “Most Charming Small Towns in America” by the Travel Channel, Newberry is a South Carolina cultural and historic treasure. This little city has it all—history, beauty and Southern hospitality.

Newberry lies just off Interstate 26 in the picturesque Midlands of South Carolina. Back in the mid-18th century, the area was settled by German, Scotch-Irish and English immigrants. The completion of the railroad through this sweet spot brought great wealth and profitability, helping create one of the largest cotton markets in the Palmetto State.

With careful preservation over the years, Newberry has retained its small-town charm while offering a plethora of distinctive shops, world-class restaurants and notable attractions, including Newberry College, one of the Southeast’s most renowned private colleges.

Recreational and entertaining activities abound in the neighboring countryside, with accessible lakes, forests, rivers, golf courses, vineyards and the internationally acclaimed Carter and Holmes orchid nursery.

Tucked between Columbia, the state capital, and Greenville, a bustling metropolis and manufacturing hub, Newberry is the perfect midway location for business meetings and events with its outstanding transportation network and the downtown Firehouse Conference Center. If you’re looking for a slower pace of life with the feel of a city, you'll find it in Newberry.
