About the Spinning Jenny
The Spinning Jenny has a fascinating and varied past. Originally constructed as a grocery store, it has housed a feed and seed, roller skating rink, wrestling rink, heavy metal music room, Opry house, and is now, at last, a Leisure Center and Music Hall. Many locals have strong, affectionate memories of getting a drink at the soda fountain or bringing their children to the roller skating rink. It has been a Greer institution for almost 70 years.
Now under new management and with an upfit, 107 Cannon Street is ready for her next phase in life. Featuring a unique variety of events for the Upstate, The Spinning Jenny is becoming a vital part of the downtown Greer community.
Conveniently located between Spartanburg and Greenville and just off of I-85, The Spinning Jenny is perfectly positioned to reach the Upstate.
