Why Hampton Heights

Neighbors love Hampton Heights for many reasons.

Here are a few of our favorite reasons:

  1. Neighbors are working diligently to preserve the historic architecture of our homes.
  2. There are two parks, Willow Oaks Park and Irwin Park, in our neighborhood.
  3. In 2008, there were less than 10 children under the age of 12; in 2014, there are well over 50. Hampton Heights is a great place for young families.
  4. We are a 15 minute walk from downtown Spartanburg, Spartanburg County Public Libraries Headquarters, Morgan Square and its many restaurants, Hub City Farmers’ Market, Partners for Active Living & Spartanburg Bcycle, Hub Bub, the Iron Yard, and more; and a 30 minute walk from Chapman Cultural Center.
  5. There is a grocery store that backs up to our neighborhood for convenient shopping.
  6. Walking and bicycling throughout our neighborhood is easy and convenient thanks to the installation of bicycle lanes and historic lighting through a grant from Mary Black Foundation.
  7. Hampton Heights is one of two locally designated historic districts in the City of Spartanburg, and many of our homes are part of the National Register for Historic Places.
  8. Hampton Heights was was featured in This Old House as the "Best Place in the South to Buy an Old House". The Irwin House was featured in the pictures.
  9. Neighbors enjoy spending time together through our annual chili cookoff, National Night Out Celebration, and other gatherings at Willow Oaks Park.
  10. Hampton Heights' homes are affordable, convenient, quirky, colorful, and filled with character.

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.
