Gassaway Mansion is said to be the largest house in the Upstate with over 22,000 square feet. Completed in 1924, it was home to textile magnate Walter Gassaway and his wife, former Ottaray Hotel manager Minnie Quinn.

Much of the masonry and stone work was salvaged from the old Vardry McBee Mill at the Falls of the Reedy River. From the late 1950s until the early 1970s, it was an apartment complex. It also served as the Greenville County Art Museum. Today, the home is privately owned and used as a wedding and reception facility.

SCIWAY sends a big thank you to Joseph Baker for contributing this picture as well as the accompanying information.

One of my most memorable school field trips as a child in Greenville (late 50s and early 60s) was a visit to the Gassaway Mansion. It was a thrill to experience an art museum! I remember a quote we saw: “There is so much good in the worst of us and so much bad in the best of us, it hardly behooves any of us to talk about the rest of us.”
