Downtown Newberry

Just off Interstate 26 in the scenic Midlands of South Carolina lies the City of Newberry — one of South Carolina's cultural and historic treasures.

Newberry is a town rich in history and known for its beauty and small town charm. Although it is place where the past has been carefully and beautifully preserved, it's also a town with a vibrant present and an eye towards the future. Newberry's downtown boasts an array of unique shops and restaurants, the state-of-the-art Newberry Opera House, the historic Edward Kyzer Newberry Firehouse Conference Center, and one of the Southeast's finest private colleges.

Newberry's downtown historic district is the centerpiece of our community, a hub for local trade, government, and culture. It's a true old-fashioned town center where neighbors meet for business and enjoyment, the community gathers for festivals and events, and a picturesque outdoor venue with dozens of shops and restaurants. Named one of the "Most Charming Small Towns in America" by Travel Channel, Newberry has something for everyone.

The surrounding countryside offers diverse outdoor activities from our local vineyard, to nearby lakes, rivers, forest preserves and golf courses. Newberry is located midway between the state capital of Columbia and Greenville, a cultural and economic hub of the state. Visitors and residents can enjoy a small town pace of life, but also know that the hustle and bustle of a larger city is just a short drive away.

The City of Newberry welcomes you to stop by and stay awhile! You may find that Newberry is just the place you've been looking for.
