In 1758, the larger districts of northern South Carolina were broken up into smaller counties. Newberry was one of six counties that made up the Ninety Six District.
Through the years, many beautiful landmarks have been built in our town, including the Old Fire Station. In 1883, the Newberry Fire Department was formed by the town and was housed in the Opera House. A few years later, in the early 1900's, a two story fire house was built, right next door to the Opera House, giving the Fire Department of Newberry a place of their own. Eventually, in the 1930's it was expanded and remodeled in the style of Art Deco by the Works Progress Administration, though it was decommissioned in the 1980's.
In 2005, the Old Fire Station was renovated into a state of the art conference center for businesses and social events. Today it is still available for business to meet in any of the wide variety of rooms for training seminars, management retreats and executive board meetings. We provide the facilities of a big city with the intimacy of a small town.
