If it’s been a while since your last visit, you may not recognize it.
Located across the Reedy River in downtown, Greenville’s Historic West End was once home to Furman University when it was first established in 1852, and later cotton warehouses in the late 1800s. At the turn of the 20th century, it was a thriving commercial district. However, as commercial activity shifted away from cotton and mills along the Reedy River closed, many residents left the city. The West End became increasingly derelict, and buildings were abandoned.
The West End began a period of revitalization in the 1970s. The Warehouse Theatre is proud to have been a catalyst of some of that growth, having moved into an old factory warehouse in the area in 1973. Today, the Historic West End is the arts and entertainment center of Greenville, S.C. With its proximity to Falls Park and the newly-finished Pedrick’s Garden, The Warehouse Theatre is also close to some of the area’s best restaurants and shopping. So, the next time you come see a show, take a moment to also enjoy our surroundings.
The West End Passport program provides benefits to The Warehouse Theatre’s season subscribers while simultaneously continuing to grow West End businesses. Through the program, local businesses provide discounts to West End Passport holders. It is one way we say “thank you” to patrons of the arts, while also encouraging and facilitating the growth and success of West End businesses. Thank you to all of the participating businesses in this exciting program!
