For the founders of the Spartanburg County Historical Association, it wasn't enough to read about their region's past. They wanted to bring bygone days to life for residents and visitors with engaging exhibits and meticulously restored sites. The Spartanburg Regional History Museum, for instance, welcomes guests with a bell from the Riverdale Mill, displayed in the lobby as a nod to the area's textile heritage. Interactive displays share the county's story, from the first Spanish explorers to tread its grounds to anticipated future generations of space Spartanburgians. In addition to operating the museum, the association maintains three historic properties: Walnut Grove Plantation, the Historic Price House, and Seay House. The 18th and 19th-century buildings provide a glimpse into the daily lives of South Carolinians, from wealthy landowners to laboring farmers.

At Airwolf Aviation, founder Michele Rash and her team of instructors keep one thought in mind when training students to become certified pilots: "Would I sit in the back seat while he or she flew me around?" This question guides them while they tailor training for each student and has resulted in a pass/fail rate of 97% over the past three years.

With three flight schools, a fleet of Cessna airplanes, and a multi-engine Piper Aztec E, the instructors lead courses that qualify students for private, instrument, commercial, and multi-engine pilot licenses. They also help professional pilots earn flight-instructor certifications. When they’re not teaching lessons, Airwolf's team introduces clients to aviation through discovery flights and city tours that fly to the governor's floating mansion.
