Post Office, South Carolina

Glenn Springs, Spartanburg County

Built around 1900, the post office used be next to the hotel, but when it burned, the town decided to move the post office to this location. The first postmaster, Robert Allen Cates, also ran the Cates Store. This is a contributing building to the Historic District of Glenn Springs.

Calvary Episcopal Church, South Carolina

Founded in 1848, the Calvary Episcopal Church is in the former resort town, Glenn Springs, started by John B. Glenn who had a mineral spring on his property. This Carpenter Gothic church was built in 1897. It lists as part of the Glenn Springs Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places.

Smith House, South Carolina

Glenn Springs, Spartanburg County

Located in historic Glenn Springs, this transitional Greek Revival home belonged to Lillie Mae and Bill Smith. It’s still in the family, and they do have a desire to restore. I understand there is a grand staircase in the home. I highly recommend a visit to the town because of the historic buildings there.
