Greenwood, South Carolina

Greenwood, South Carolina

Greenwood is a pretty good size town,
has the essentials like Wal-Mart and Cracker Barrel and Lowe's.

Did you know that Greenwood has the
'widest main street in the world'?
The perfect place for the
South Carolina Festival of Flowers.

Greenwood is also the home of FujiFilm's
North American headquarters:

The 500 acre complex boasts four state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities for the production of QuickSnap recyclable cameras, color photographic paper, and digital printing plates for the Graphic Arts industry. Fujifilm South Carolina is also home of the Greenwood Research Laboratories and Fujifilm's largest distribution center in the world.

And don't forget the Park Seed Company
has their main facility and gardens here:

Park Seed obtained 500 acres on the northern edge of Greenwood, and designed and built there a total business complex to house the company’s offices, research facilities, seed storage and processing areas, temperature-controlled areas for storing plants and bulbs, computer facilities, mailorder department, and customer service facility, plus its catalog preparation area and a showroom and reception area for its rapidly growing wholesale division.

Just up the road a piece in nearby Laurens, South Carolina is the
Michelin Lauren Proving Grounds:

Consisting of over a dozen special tracks and surfaces for tire and suspension system testing, driver training, and event management, all situated on over 3300 acres. Our commitment to mobility safety is evident in our involvement through instruction of First Responder groups nationwide, teaching them a variety of handling and avoidance techniques.

It is almost time to move on, we have enjoyed our time here in South Carolina, especially the little campground we found in Cross Hill. The owners, Alan and Marie Titus are really nice folks! So if you are in the area, stop by the All Seasons Family Campground, tell them we sent you!

It looks like a lovely place for a visit. But I know you'll be glad to get back home to the mountains!
