In the city of Greenville, South Carolina, a significant concentration of artists, studios, and galleries has recently developed on the western edge of the city limits, approximately a mile and half from the Central Business District. This art district, known by many different names (i.e. Pendleton Street Arts District, Far West End, etc.) will be referred to within this study as the West Greenville Business District. Located next to an old mill, many of these studios and galleries are in renovated commercial buildings that had formerly served the mill workers. The commercial district and its surrounding neighborhood is approximately 493 acres.
