Home of Clayton “Peg Leg” Bates, Fountain Inn got its name from an old Inn and fountain that were along the old stage coach route. The city attracted travelers seeking rest from tiresome journeys between Greenville and the low country in South Carolina. Back then the stage coach drivers called the stop Fountain Inn, and it stuck. The fountain still remains at city hall along with a statue of Clayton “Peg Leg” Bates, who was a well-known entertainer in his day that taught himself how to dance with a wooden peg leg after loosing a leg at the age of 12.
The southern part of the city of Fountain Inn is in Laurens County, while the bulk of the city is in Greenville County. Fountain Inn is home to companies like Kyocera Mita, Catapillar, GlaxoSmithKline, W.W. Grainger, Tecknor Apex, Goglanian Bakeries, plus many more.
