legacy type

Historical Photo of Downtown Spartanburg Since 2011, Hatcher Garden has worked with the City of Spartanburg to obtain slabs of century old granite curbing, originally installed along Spartanburg’s streets in the 1880's, to build “green” benches from this recycled granite for Hatcher Garden.

These natural benches, placed in tranquil and inspirational locations throughout the Garden, will allow people to honor friends and memorialize
steller bench loved ones. The naming opportunities for these unique granite benches currently begin around $2000, and are dependent upon the size and location of the bench in the Garden. With your bench sponsorship donation, you will become a member of the Harold and Josephine Hatcher Society with various Garden membership and event benefits based on your annual giving level.

Each century-old granite bench is not only an example of the highest form of recycle, it is a beautiful piece of art for all to enjoy and a cherished reminder of our past.

Paver Benches
sitting in front of the paver area


Located close to the stream which flows out of the Upper Pond, these two small benches face the newly built stone retaining wall, with the section of pavers lying between. These two benches are available separately or as a set. The babbling stream near by provides a calming setting for these benches. Keeping with the alpine theme, two large rocks sit near by in the wood chip mulch.
