In the 1820s, the area now known as Simpsonville was simply a stagecoach stop at the intersection of Old Stage Road and a Cherokee trail known as Georgia Road. The city was originally called O Plain, and eventually became Simpsonville in 1885, deriving its name from settler Peter Simpson, who set up a blacksmith shop in town during the 1830s. After the Civil War, streets and lots were surveyed for a town that would hold a new railroad track. These streets make up the historic district of Simpsonville today, and are largely preserved to their original look.
Like many cities in the South, Simpsonville saw a major textile boom in 1908 with the establishment of the Woodside Cotton Mill, which was the city’s largest employer until World War II ended. The town rapidly evolved after the construction of I-385, which made Simpsonville and its neighboring cities more accessible. This attracted large companies such as Pratt Industries, Kemet, and the Cryovac Division of Sealed Air Corporation.
