The Greenwood Hotel has played an important part in the commercial development of Greenwood County since its construction in 1883. The building not only provided lodging, it also provided a place to conduct business and housed various retail, restaurant and entertainment businesses. Over the years the hotel was remodeled multiple times, and several eras of construction were present when the Greenwood Preservation Society started the process of restoring the hotel. In 2011, the first floor and exterior restoration was completed. The interior work included the removal of non-historic partitions, wood restoration, tin ceiling repair and fire barrier installation. Exterior work included wood window repair, replication of metal trim, clay tile roof repair, stucco repair, and modifications to meet ADA requirements.
Federal and state historic preservation tax credits were utilized to fund this project.
The project team included the Greenwood Preservation Society, William Morris Associates Architects, Accel Construction LLC, InSite Group, D&B Engineering and Mechanical Concepts.
