Greenwood is in the path of totality. It’s a prime location for viewing the eclipse on August 21, 2017!

We think Greenwood is a great place to stay any time! However, it’s especially amazing during the Great American Total Solar Eclipse. We will have more than two minutes of totality. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here are several other places on the web that have taken note of our location.

Monday August 21 at 2:39 p.m. the sky will go dark.

Millions of people, from all over the world will join together to view this once in a lifetime event. Some will travel for their love of science. Others will travel to see this Act of God, and most of us will travel because we want to be a part of history and like to experience the wonders of this world. We invite you to join us, Monday August 21st 2017 to stand side by side, eyes toward the sky, mouths wide open, watching from one of the longest viewing locations in the country, here at the Inn on the Square.
