Simpsonville is located in Greenville County. It began as stagecoach stop but traffic and the accompanying commerce all but ceased during the Civil War.

After the war, local African-Americans formed Cedar Grove Baptist Church, named for its wooded location. The first structure was a mere brush arbor, but in 1877 they were able to build a log church of pine and poplar. With multiple brick buildings to house their ministry, Cedar Grove Baptist remains a large, active church in Simpsonville today.

Simpsonville is located 12 miles from Greenville. It is part of the Upstate's "Golden Strip," which also includes Mauldin and Fountain Inn and refers to a relatively low unemployment rate in the three towns. Here is a map of the Greenville area.
