Founded in the 1750s by European settlers, the area around Newberry, South Carolina became known for cotton plantations. Newberry College was used as a Civil War hospital and the historic courthouse was burnt by Sherman and his troops. Today, the town is home to around 10,000 people. A number of the neighborhoods are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Newberry Opera House is another icon in the community, welcoming performances since 1882.
