Reedy River Falls Historic Park

The Reedy River, named for the "reeds" which once grew close around its banks, flows from Traveler's Rest southward for almost sixty miles. In the middle of Greenville, it tumbles into steep, narrow falls, and then meanders toward Conestee before joining the Saluda River at Lake Greenwood. Its shoals and falls were a source of power for early settlers. Greenville's Main street is located at its shallow ford. Early water-powered industries clustered along the Reedy River: an ironworks, the Gower, Cox, and Markley Coach Factory (1835-1910), a sawmill, a paper-making factory, an armory, a grist and corn mills. Later, Greenvillians established textile and apparel mills along its banks.
