Simpsonville, South Carolina
South Carolina Greenville County Simpsonville
Simpsonville is located in Greenville County. It began as stagecoach stop but traffic and the accompanying commerce all but ceased during the Civil War.
After the war, local African-Americans formed Cedar Grove Baptist Church, named for its wooded location. The first structure was a mere brush arbor, but in 1877 they were able to build a log church of pine and poplar. With multiple brick buildings to house their ministry, Cedar Grove Baptist remains a large, active church in Simpsonville today.
Simpsonville is located 12 miles from Greenville. It is part of the Upstate's "Golden Strip," which also includes Mauldin and Fountain Inn and refers to a relatively low unemployment rate in the three towns. Here is a map of the Greenville area.
