Historical Marker outside of the Woolworth’s Building in Spartanburg, SC.

Our office moved into the former Woolworth’s Building in 2001. Historically, 127 Dunbar Street is the former location of Woolworth’s, a chain department store and one of the original pioneers of the five-and-dime store (it had frontage on both Main and Dunbar Streets). Look for a plaque on the McMillan Pazdan Smith building that commemorates a historic event in the civil rights movement. The marker recognizes the site of a sit-in protest at the Woolworth’s lunch counter on July 26, 1960, when brave African American youths joined nationwide protests of white-only lunch counters.
