Enoree River

The Enoree River is a tributary of the Broad River, 85 mi (137 km) long, in northwestern South Carolina in the United States.[1] Via the Broad and Congaree Rivers, it is part of the watershed of the Santee River, which flows to the Atlantic Ocean.[2]

The Enoree rises in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains [1] in Greenville County about 2 mi (3 km) northwest of the town of Travelers Rest, and flows generally southeastwardly across the Piedmont region, through or along the boundaries of Spartanburg, Laurens, Union and Newberry Counties, past the communities of Taylors and Whitmire and through the Sumter National Forest. It flows into the Broad River from the west in Newberry County,[2] 15 mi (24 km) northeast of the town of Newberry.[1]

Variant names and spellings

According to the Geographic Names Information System,[3] the Enoree River has also been known historically as:

  • Collins River
  • Ennoree River
  • Ganoree

The name Enoree is thought to be derived from a Cherokee word meaning river of muscadines.
