About The City Of Belton

Welcome to Belton, South Carolina, home of the Palmetto Tennis Championships, the S.C. Tennis Hall of Fame, the Belton Center for the Arts and the Standpipe Festival.

Belton was chartered in 1855 soon after the Columbia and Greenville Railroad was built. It soon became a junction point to the C & G, the Piedmont and Northern and the Blue Ridge (Southern Railway) with 36 passenger trains serving the town. The city is still served today by two railroads: the Greenville & Western Railway and the Pickens Railway.
