Vardry McBee is known as the Father of Greenville, South Carolina. McBee purchased 11,028 acres of land in Greenville County that now makes up much of the central part of Greenville City today. He donated land for the first four churches and first male and female academies. He was also extremely vital in bringing the city its first railroad. McBee was also instrumental in the relocation of Furman University to its present day location. He owned two flour mills, a cotton factory, wool and paper mills, and a store in Greenville. A Vardry McBee autograph is a great memento of South Carolina. Your order comes with a separate image of the back of the check showinh McBee's endorsement. This reproduction would look great in an album or display.
