About Hampton Heights

Developed in the late 19th century and featuring a significant collection of Queen Anne, Bungalow, Craftsman, Four-Square, and Neo-Classical homes, Hampton Heights is the City of Spartanburg’s oldest neighborhood. It originally was a popular neighborhood for professionals and civic leaders, and families enjoyed time outdoors along its tree-lined streets.

Much of the Hampton Heights Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. And after a period of neglect and decline in the mid-to-late 20th century, Hampton Heights has made a remarkable comeback. Families have returned as dozens of historic renovation projects have restored the neighborhood to its former grandeur.

Today, Hampton Heights is an attractive and diverse neighborhood. Its residents have formed a tight-knit and proud community. Neighbors enjoy sidewalk strolls and front porch visits. There are many families with young children, and we are fortunate to have the The Spartanburg Preparatory School as well as the Montessori Academy located in the neighborhood.

They also value the proximity to downtown. Hampton Heights is a walkable neighborhood and a mere ten minute stroll to downtown - easy access to restaurants, shops, Jazz on the Square, Music on Main, Skating on the Square and other City sponsored downtown events.  At evening events on Morgan Square or at The Showroom and other venues, you’re sure to see Hampton Heights well represented, often by people who walked just a few blocks from their historic neighborhood to enjoy all that downtown has to offer.

The Hampton Heights Neighborhood Association (HHNA) provides a collective voice when expressing concerns to the City, a source for information on area community events, and builds a stronger sense of neighborhood community through fun neighborhood events. Any household in the Hampton Heights neighborhood is welcome to join.

The HHNA Board members meet nine to twelve times a year to organize neighborhood events and plan responses to neighborhood concerns. Meetings are typically held the third Tuesday of the month.
