About Us/Our History

GWC First Page

Local news has been the heart and soul of the Greenwood Commonwealth since it first started publishing in 1896.

We continue to work diligently to bring the readers of the Commonwealth the finest in local news and information.

This website is designed to provide news and information about this community to anyone who has Internet access, plus make it easier for readers to interact with each other as they share their opinions about the day's headlines.

In addition to current news content, the site includes archives dating back to 1916.

There are also powerful Internet classifieds and advertising offers from local and national companies. So whether you're buying a car, looking for your next house, changing jobs or searching for that retired Beanie Baby, start your journey here.

This web site has our name on it, and we'll keep it up to date, but we want you to think of it as yours, too. Use it, enjoy it, and let us know how we can make it better. We are always eager to hear from you.
