Take a fascinating walk through Greenville’s historic West End.

The Tour

Take a fascinating walk through Greenville’s historic West End with your tour guide, “Big Chuck,” and hear some amazing stories about the evolution of this neighborhood from working-class neighborhoods to a dynamic new extension of Greenville’s downtown area. 

You will hear about old businesses, new development, Civil Rights events, arts development, the history of the automotive industry from the dawning of cars in America, and more.  

When we reach Greenville High School you will hear about some of the most famous school graduates, from “The Potato Chip King,” to one of the most historic Hollywood Oscar winners, and to a genuine American war hero from one of America’s most perilous moments.  

We will talk baseball at the entrance to Fluor Field and hear the story of Greenville’s beloved native son, Shoeless Joe Jackson (and you can get a “selfie” in front of his house!).  

These, and so much more, will make this an interesting 90-minute, easily managed walk down through the footpaths of history in Greenville’s Historic West End.
