Reedy River Falls
— Historic Park —The Presbyterian Synod of South Carolina established Chicora College for Young Ladies in 1893 as "McBee's Terrace," opposite the Greenville Coach Factory on the south bank of the Reedy. Its sixteen acre campus, with grounds landscaped down to the river's edge, eventually included a 1200 seat auditorium, a dormitory, administration building, and a president's home. Liberal arts subjects, business courses (including typewriting and bookkeeping), photography, and music were taught to more than 200 young women each year. The college moved to Columbia in 1915, and in 1933 merged with Queens College in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1917 the main college building burned, the buildings were razed, and the land redeveloped for commercial use.
