  • “The Ice Cream Station is a really cool part of Simpsonville. The people that work there are always so nice and the ice cream is really good. It’s kind of a central hang out spot for everyone here, so I always see someone that I know,” said junior Maggie Rossello (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • “The Amphitheatre at Heritage Park really brings the community together. Everyone is there listening to their favorite music and connecting with people. It also benefits local businesses [that] can act as vendors there,” said freshman Sean Wisely (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • “First Baptist Simpsonville serves the community in big ways and continually finds ways to get involved in our town. It really feels like a home outside of my own home. First Baptist Simpsonville [has] such an intimate environment that has given me some of my closest friends. The church steeple is something that is visible from downtown Simpsonville and it’s just a reminder of the loving community we have here [in Simpsonville],” said junior Kasey Griggs (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • The Historic Simpsonville Clock Tower was donated by former mayor Ralph Hendricks, who served as mayor from 1975 to 1987. Without Hendricks, Simpsonville would not have things such as the development in downtown, the library, and of course, the Clock Tower. Hendricks contributed to the city in big ways and Simpsonville was saddened by his loss when he passed on February 17, 2019 at the age of 101. “The Clock Tower is one of my favorite parts of Simpsonville because it is such an iconic part of our little town. Whenever you think of Simpsonville, you think of the clock tower,” said junior Jordan Oppatt (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • Recently, McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture released their designs for the new development that will be located in the former Burdette Hardware building and in the surrounding area. This new development will include a Sidewall Pizza and Kaffeine Coffee Shop and Roastery. Burdette Place will be a central hub of business similar to Travelers Rest. “There’s been a lot of growth in downtown Simpsonville and it has given [the] area a lot of things to do there. More things to do obviously means more business, which helps the community,” said senior Cassidy Dickson (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • “In Heritage Park, there is a slide with a big baseball cap on the top and that is my favorite part of Simpsonville. [I like it because] it gives you a view of the park and even the city, which is really cool to see,” said junior Hannah Chambers (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • “Exchange Co. is one of my favorite parts of Simpsonville, simply because I like their crepes and just their food in general. They offer [options] such as gluten free and it just makes me feel healthy when I eat there. There is such a unique atmosphere there. One cool thing about Exchange Co. is that they give back to places around the world,” said sophomore Brigitte Pinochet (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • “The backroads in Simpsonville are so pretty. Driving around, you can see different nature scenes, pass farmlands, and [look at] historic houses. It’s just such a neat aspect of Simpsonville that can be taken for granted,” said junior Mariah Cash (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • Regardless of what people choose as their favorite part of Simpsonville, most residents can think of something that they love about this town. As students go through high school and look towards college, many are cherishing the bittersweet moments left living in their hometown before moving away. The Simpsonville City motto is “Character Protected, Community Perfected,” which is something that this area exemplifies, making people fall in love with this little town in upstate South Carolina (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).
