It wasn’t until 1880 after the railroad was extended from Spartanburg that the Town of Landrum was officially founded. The city is named after John Landrum who gave the railroad land in 1877 to construct a station. Situated just west of Interstate 26 between Spartanburg, S.C., and Asheville, N.C., the City of Landrum is nestled against the backdrop of the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains. Visitors enjoy strolling through unique antique and specialty shops, and dining in Landrum‘s quaint eateries. Campbell’s Covered Bridge, located nearby, is the only covered bridge remaining in South Carolina.
