Travelers Rest has always been a stop-over for travelers. The Travelers Rest Historical Society notes that in the late 1800s to mid 1900s the Swamp Rabbit Train made 13 stops in the upcountry to places such as Greenville, Marietta and of course Travelers Rest. Thus the history of the Swamp Rabbit Trail is born. In early 2010 The Swamp Rabbit rail line, long out of use, was converted to the Swamp Rabbit Trail with walking, running and biking, helping spark the economic resurgence of "TR" bringing the Swamp Rabbit Cafe, and even more shops, restaurants and tourism. Now your family can reside within walking distance of the Swamp Rabbit Trail. This newly built craftsman home has ALL main level living and Bonus room with walk in closet. Granite in kitchen/baths, laminated tongue and groove flooring in the foyer, great room, dining room and kitchen., ceramic tile flooring in baths.

With a population of about 5,000, Travelers Rest, known by locals as TR, is a small town on the rise. It is located between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the larger city of Greenville, which is the primary city of this region. The town got its name from its position as a stop for travelers who would rest there in the early 1800s before a difficult journey into the mountains. Furman University is situated just south of the city limits, and Travelers Rest consequently enjoys a college town feel, as the campus is a source for entertainment, sports and other events.

History

This small town located in the northern part of Greenville County began as a place where settlers arriving in Conestoga wagons would stop on their way through the mountains. Drovers from Kentucky and Tennessee on their way to South Carolina markets passed through Travelers Rest in the 1800s, along with their herds of cattle, sheep and hogs. As a result, taverns and inns sprang up in this area to accommodate these travelers. Lodging business picked up even more throughout the 1800s, as travelers continued to arrive by train after the introduction of the railroad.

 

Travelers Rest was incorporated twice, first in 1891 until the incorporation period expired 30 years later, and again in 1891, after residents petitioned to incorporate the city under its existing name.
