Originally called “Southern City” because of the significance of the railway to the area, East Spencer was incorporated in 1901. That name change to East Spencer had reference to the Spencer Shops. The Southern Railway Spencer Shops are a former locomotive repair facility. The shops were one of the Southern Railway’s primary maintenance locations. The shops were built in the 1890s and named after Southern Railway president Samuel Spencer.

East Spencer is a small quiet community with strong ties to the railway as is true of the surrounding communities.

I can’t say enough about the fine folks at Carolina4Sale. There were quite a few bumps in the road during Our home selling experience, and if it had not been for the diligence and perseverance of our agents, this deal would never have closed. I highly recommend Carolina4Sale if you want an honest, hard working group of realtors. 5 ⭐️‘S
