Today we’re going to continue our stroll through our Historic West End in Greenville, SC.
Last week we were at the ballpark. Just across from the ballpark is the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum .
I still don’t know why he didn’t have any shoes or why nobody ever bought him any. You should click on the link above and then go read about Joe. Sounds to me like he didn’t get a fair shake at all.
Further on downtown there is a very nice statue of Joe too, but it sure looks to me like he has shoes on.
The Historic West End has several theatres too. They have the Warehouse Theatre and the South Carolina Children’s Theatre .
The Historic West End is also home to the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities and really is cool with the theatres and art studios there too.
There is also a back way in to Fall’s Park, but since we already did that tour I’ll just catch a break on the bridge.
There are some other places that are great for relaxing and if the sun gets too hot you can always pop under some shade trees or one of the big umbrellas for a while.
But one of my favorite places is the West End Market an, not only to they have lots of cool stuff there, I absolutely love the lookout tower!!!
That concludes the tour of the Historic West End in Greenville, SC. I hope you enjoyed it…I enjoyed showing you around. Maybe we’ll do it again sometime.
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
It sure looks like a great place to relax especially under those trees.
Thanks for showing me the great places! Brian, you are tagged on my blog!
Come visit and take the award alright? =)
I've always wanted to visit your town, Brian — now (thanks to your superb tour guide skills), I really do!
Brian, you give the best tours! We certainly enjoyed seeing your town!
Have a wonderful Monday!
I agree with you… it sure is curious why Shoeless Joe has shoes on. Anyway, thanks for the tour. Great as usual. I love the picture of you on the bridge…
Adorable Brian!! thank you so much for such a wonderful and ever so enlightening tour of your Historic West End in Greenville!! Me and Charlie feel as if we've visited cos you did such a grand job of showing us around. We now understand why Joe Jackson was shoeless!! We hope that the new evidence will clear his name of any wrong doing – he's a wonderful sportsman who made something of himself using his natural talents! What a guy! We like your favourite spot on the lookout tower of the west end market! LOL!! And how there are so… Read more »
We always enjoy touring your wonderful town!
Oh I had the bestest time on the tour. I am off to find out more about Shoeless Joe Jackson. I want to know why the didn't get the bean some shoes. ~Scylla
I learned about "Shoeless Joe Jackson" in "Field Of Dreams" I think, I bet you like that movie!
What a wonderful tour! You are a brave kitty to go up in that tower!
I would have loved to have shared a cup of "Joe" (not "shoeless" MOL) at the outdoor patio…what lovely umbrellas!
Thanks for showing us around!

Hi Brian! Thanks for the great tour! It is so nice there where you are – you are so lucky to have so many cool things!
And well, being from Chicago I know about Shoeless Joe Jackson, but it is interesting to read that there are some new things coming out – that part I didn't know!
Brian, your tours are so fun. Thanks for sharing. But now Mom has an itch to abandon us and go see your town~
What a cool place you live in! mama has the travel bug now!
Perhaps someone stole Shoeless Joe's shoes AFTER the statue was erected? Or maybe they stole them FOR the statue?
Love the tour Brian!!
That was a terrific tour of Greenville. We enjoyed it a lot and we only live an hour away. Great pictures and good history. Hope you have a great week Brian and all your sisters.
Another great tour, Brian. Thanks! That lookout tower is pawsome – what a spot to snoopervise the city!

Brian, you always give such fun tours! We love your town very much! Lots of love, Holly and mom
That sure looks like a really nice place. Thanks for the tour. Are dogs allowed in the park? We are your newest followers.
Brian, you give the best tour of any cat I know. I hope you do decide there are some Christmas lights we might like to see. You are quite the Cat About Town. PURRS and BONKS
We love the Tabby Town tours! And thanks for the link about Shoeless Joe – we always wondered about the "shoeless" part too!
Brian, you are clearly a man about town!!!!!
Brian, we enjoyed your tour and we had a lot of fun looking for you in each picture! We were especially tickled where you were in the Peter Pan one. Fun!
A very nice tour, Brian and it looks like a really nice place in Historic West End South Carolina there. Several of the adopted cats here would like to come down there and check it out in person, maybe you'll be their guide if they ever get there! They are especially interested in the leafy green areas that like like good places for plenty of cat naps!

YOu are a superb tour host. We think that the City of Greenville ought to hire you. I bet you would be a major hit! We loved the tower the bestest too. We can see why it's your favorite too.
Wow, Brian, ya sure went ta lots of places! We would be too afraid doing all that…
Looks like a wonderful place!!!! Thanks for the tour!
We have met lots of folks from your town – maybe we should come down and visit!
We wonder why shoeless Joe isn't shoeless. We are glad we are shoeless.
Thanks for showing us the west end, Brian! You are a very good tour guide!
The West End seems to be a haven of the arts…very cool! I really enjoy your tours, and your beautiful city. Thanks for sharing.
Hmm..that seems to be the question of the day about the shoes huh?
Enjoyed your tour very much!!
And Brian, I'd accidentally posted after entering the title!! Thought I could finish the post before anyone popped over, but you were too fast for us! 🙂 What are the odds the title would be perfect for an empty post!
You make a great tour guide, Brian! I didn't even think you were allowed to go outside. Shows how much I know.
The weather still looks wonderful where you are. Me and the 3-Ds should teleport down for a PURRsonalized tour.
I love these photos you have to share. I think this is a very relaxing and lovely place to be. I like that you are up high
I like the look of your town. So clean!
Geez, my Human never takes me anywhere!
