Historic Greer Depot's story begins more than a century ago. Constructed in 1913, Charles Christian Hook of Charlotte, North Carolina, designed the depot as a combination passenger station and freight warehouse for the Piedmont & Northern Railway, later used by the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad, Seaboard System Railroad and finally CSX Transportation, before facing potential demolition in 1984. Saved from the wrecking ball by Greenville County Redevelopment Authority, it was finally sold to Station One Partnership in 1987 and redeveloped as retail and office space. Fast forward to 2017... Letchworth Properties, LLC, purchased the Historic Greer Depot with the hope of fully restoring it to its original grandeur.
The Historic Greer Depot now serves as the General and Administrative offices of Western Carolina Railway Service Corporation and its' subsidiaries, hosts a boutique beer and wine store, as well as the new Historic Greer Depot, LLC, with that conversion of the former warehouse space now underway, creating a new Event Venue and Meeting Space, opening May 2021. The indoor event space is comprised of a 3,600 sq. ft. main room for your event, including modern ADA-accessible restrooms and a catering kitchen. In addition, a 900 sq. ft. outdoor rose garden space is also available for an intimate photography or reception setting.
