Greyhound Station [gone?]
|I believe the Spartanburg station was built in 1938. It may have been designed by George D. Brown. The Spartanburg building was greatly modified in the 1960s and probably no longer exists.|
former Greyhound Station
|The Columbia station was designed by George D. Brown and built in 1939 for Atlantic Greyhound. It features glass block, blue and ivory vitrolite. The station closed in 1987 and the neon sign (top photo) was removed and taken to Greyhound's headquarters in Dallas, TX. In 1990, the building was taken over by the Lexington National Bank. They kept enough interior features and details to merit an award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The ticket windows were converted into teller windows. A replica sign was produced, sans the Greyhound name and running dog. The bank moved out in 2000 and the building sat empty until 2005. In 2005, the building was restored and now houses PSC (Plastic Surgery Consultants). The interior was gutted at that time. [1987 photo thanks Roger Wilson] For more, see this website. [map]|
