Welcome to Travelers rest

For over 300 years, Travelers Rest, at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has been a stopover for travelers. Originally home to several Indian tribes, including the Catawba, the Creek, and the Cherokee, Travelers Rest gained notoriety as a resting place for weary travelers and livestock drovers. In the 1800s drovers brought livestock from over the mountains down to the coast and stagecoaches carried families from the low country toward the cool mountains for the summer. Soon after, the railroad and highways were built and the town grew to include local businesses, a schoolhouse, and churches.

Today, restaurants, shops and the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail attract visitors and new residents from far and wide! We invite you to come travel, and rest awhile, in Travelers Rest!
