City of Gaffney

In 1803 Michael Gaffney established a store where two Indian trails crossed. The store flourished and soon a resort hotel was built near Limestone Springs. As the settlement grew, the hotel was converted into a college for women and now houses the administrative offices for Limestone College. Gaffney lies between Greenville, S.C. and Charlotte, N.C along Interstate 85. Travelers on I-85 have a difficult time missing the iconic million-gallon water tank, known as the Peachoid. This giant peach is a tribute to the area’s peach industry. Prime Outlets at Gaffney draws travelers off I-85 to shop at designer and brand name outlets. This Bicentennial city boasts three nationally certified historic districts. Gaffney is also near two Revolutionary War landmarks, Cowpens National Battlefield and Kings Mountain National Military Park.
