Woodruff – Woodruff, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Spartanburg County Photos  |  Woodruff

The post-Revolutionary War town of Woodruff in Spartanburg County was founded by veterans of the war who relocated their families to this area from Virginia and North Carolina in 1787. Originally, the settlers formed the Church of Christ on Jamey’s Creek (now Jimmie’s Creek), which attracted members from as far as Laurens County.

Joseph Woodruff, a settler from North Carolina, was granted 200 acres of land in this area. His son, Thomas Woodruff, wanted to see the community become an official town. Though he died before its incorporation, Thomas Woodruff’s two sons fulfilled his wish, and the town received a charter in 1874.

Today Woodruff is home to the Woodruff High School Wolverines. Woodruff High School was named one of “America’s Best High Schools” in 2010 by Newsweek magazine. The town clock on Main Street adds charm to Woodruff’s downtown merchant district.

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Woodruff, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
