City of Newberry

Just off Interstate 26 in the scenic Midlands of South Carolina lies the City of Newberry, one of South Carolina's cultural and historic treasures. Newberry is a town rich in history and known for its rural beauty and small town charm. In the mid-18th century the area was settled by German, Scotch-Irish, and English immigrants. The completion of the railroad through Newberry in 1853 brought prosperity as it became one of the largest cotton markets in South Carolina. Although it is a place where the past has been carefully and beautifully preserved, it's also a town with a vibrant present. Newberry's downtown boasts an array of unique shops and restaurants, the Newberry Opera House, the Newberry Arts Center,and one of the Southeast's finest private colleges, Newberry College. The surrounding countryside offers diverse outdoor activities from the internationally acclaimed Carter and Holmes orchid nursery to local vineyards, nearby lakes, rivers, forest preserves and golf courses. Newberry is located midway between Columbia, the state capital, and Greenville, a cultural and economic hub of the state; perfect for businesses looking for a place to meet in the middle for meetings or social events at our Firehouse Conference Center in downtown. Visitors and residents enjoy a small town pace of life, but also know that the hustle and bustle of a larger city is just a short drive away. The City of Newberry welcomes you to stop by and stay a while! You may find that Newberry is just the place you've been looking for.
