FountainInnHistorical-1

May 9, 2016 was a day of research and discovery for local historians and friends of the Fountain Inn Museum (FIM).   Several senior citizens who grew up in our town remember playing at the spring that was allegedly the “fountain” that supplied water to visitors of the Inn on this stage coach stop.    Being eighteen miles from both Greenville and Laurens, this spring was at a point where the horses and passengers would be in need of a place to get refreshed from this old mode of transportation before the railroads came through the area.
