Strawberry Hill USA
3092 SC Hwy 11

This is a multi generational farm, going back to the early 1900’s. In 1989, the Cooley family decided to develop their our own niche market by selling peaches directly to the consumer. In 1995 they planted 6 acres of strawberries. Today this is the largest strawberry farm in the state with 115 acres, but it’s peaches that are still the primary crop with close to 1,000 acres in production and nearly 30 different varieties. In The Shed, the old-timey peach shed used for their market, you’ll also find summer squash, cucumbers, cantaloupes, pumpkins, and more.

When James A. Chapman founded Inman Mills in 1901, he founded a company that would not only still be spinning and weaving fabric more than a century later, but one that would also become a family legacy so tightly woven into the history of Spartanburg County that it would be impossible to imagine life without it. Indeed, from the first revolution of an Inman spindle, generation after generation of the Chapman family have sat at the helm of the company which is today, a dynamic, modern textile manufacturer employing more than 700 people at three plants—Saybrook in Inman, Ramey and Mountain Shoals in Enoree—along with Eastbank Textiles, LLC, a subsidiary in Macon, Georgia.
Inman Mills had a central role in the economic and physical development of the city of Inman in South Carolina. In addition, Inman Mills is eligible for listing under Criterion C as a well preserved example of the architecture and engineering of a major southern textile mill. Designed by W.B. Smith Whaley in the Romanesque Revival style, Inman Mills retains its multi-story entrance tower, uniform fenestration with buttresses inserted at regular intervals, and, though the windows were bricked-in during the mid-twentieth century, the window openings remain readily apparent. The architectural features and physical integrity of the plant meet the registration requirements set forth in the MPS document “Textile Mills in South Carolina Designed by W.B. Smith Whaley, 1893-1903.” Source: InmanMills.com/history | National Register of Historic Places Listing | Inman Mills Historic Property Record

Bush Homeplace (Private Residence/Not Open to the Public)
3960 New Cut Road
Inman SC 29349
The Bush House is an excellent example of an upcountry antebellum farmhouse that was enlarged to meet the changing needs of a prominent Spartanburg County family. The architecture and construction of the house is representative of an adaptable and expandable type of residence that was popular with rural homeowners during the nineteenth century. The characteristics of the original ca. 1830 hall-and-parlor structure are still evident with the two unequal rooms that served multiple functions and the exterior end chimney. The house was enlarged ca. 1850 on one end and in a perpendicular fashion to include a two-story I-House by the mid-nineteenth century as the family expanded. The transformation of the hall-and-parlor house to a modified I-House is architecturally significant as an example of two architectural forms that were once prevalent in the rural upcountry. The Bush House has been continuously in the ownership of the Bush family or its descendants since ca. 1830. Story Bush and her three sons began working a farm that would eventually become one of Spartanburg County’s most significant farms in the nineteenth century, with approximately 1,115 acres under the ownership of her descendants. In addition to the main house, one historic outbuilding–a smokehouse–is extant. Listed in the National Register October 21, 2003.
