This monument is erected out of respect for the peach, delectable fruit of a friendly soil and a beneficent sun.
Upon a pedestal we place it as a symbol of God's bounty and man's enterprise.
Spartanburg County has the honor of the richest peach harvest in the nation, and we are grateful for this favor.

[Marker Rear]

An appreciative community pays tribute to those pioneer orchardists who through foresight and diligence, established and industry that means much to our welfare.
They set a worthy example in cultivating a choice fruit, and their culture of the land contributed to the culture of mankind.
First carload of Spartanburg County peaches shipped July 31, 1924.
