The Peace Center in Greenville, South Carolina is actually a performing arts theatre. It was named as such to honor local South Carolina citizens, the Peace family who gave 10 million dollars to develop the place. The Center was constructed over three old and decaying properties ? an 1880?s textile factory, wagon builders for the Confederate Army, and a residence building of Duke Mayonnaise. After it was finished, the Peace Center was launched to the public in 1990, boasting of 2,100 seats at the Peace Concert Hall and 400 seats for the Dorothy Hipp Gunter Theater. Aside from these is the Dow Brands Amphitheater situated along the Reedy River.

The Peace Center is a much sought-after venue of more than 300 events every year. These events include Broadway, classical music performances, and shows of famous artists like David Copperfield and Bill Cosby. These and several shows from its resident entertainers, the Carolina Ballet Theater, the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, the International Ballet and the South Carolina Children?s Theater, complete the theatre?s yearly line-up.
