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.
In fact, The Spinning Jenny is reported to be haunted by Joe, a former worker at the roller skating rink. When the hall is quiet and still, he has been heard shuffling down the floor whistling a tune as he goes about helping patrons of the past lace up their roller skates.
Now under new management and with an upfit, 107 Cannon Street is ready for her next phase in life. Featuring Music, Dance, Theatre, Weddings, Meetings, Community Events, Festivals, and more, 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.
