I’ve got a couple of updates to pass along from the notes from the Spartanburg History Hub…. First up is tomorrow! July 11th…

Cedar Spring Baptist Church invites you to our remembrance of the 230th Anniversary of the 1st Battle of Cedar Spring. The celebration is planned for Sunday, July 11, 2010, during the 11:00 am worship service. A covered dish luncheon will follow the service. For more information, call the church at 585-5526.

The next item on the list is the voting for the Biltmore Estates Holiday wine label. It seems a Spartanburg native is in the running to have her design chosen (online voting – her design is currently in the lead!)

Tina Steenerson is the Spartanburg artist who designs the Regional History Museum’s historic stained glass ornament series featuring historic structures in Spartanburg County. We have always loved her work and it looks like the folks at Biltmore do, too. Please take a moment to click on the link below to vote for her “Sunset Snow Scene” wine label design. It’s beautiful and it would also be wonderful for a Spartanburg artist to win the contest.

Here’s the message she passed along:


I just received notification that I am a finalist in the Biltmore Christmas Wine Label Design contest! Please go to :

and vote for “Sunset Snow Scene”.

Congratulations and good luck!

The third item is Peach History Day, July 17th:

The Greenville Chapter, National Railway Historical Society; The Convention and Visitors Bureau; The Spartanburg County Historical Association; and Main Street Trolley, Inc., are sponsoring “Peach History Day” on Saturday, July 17, 2010. Featured events will be a tour of the Inman and Gramling peach growing areas. A presentation will be made, en route, on the role railroads played in the development and growth of the peach-growing industry. As an added treat, peach ice cream will be served on the tour. Main Street Trolley will be providing the transportation. Fares will be $15 for adults and $8 for children under 12. Various farm implements will be on display at the Farmers Market and Hub City Railroad Museum on Magnolia Street, Spartanburg, from 8AM till noon. The Main Street Trolley Peach tours will depart from the depot at 9 am and 11:30 am.

Sounds like a fun tour!
