Abstract:
Greenville once was known for making the best buggies in the state. Therefore, one of the greatest buggy builders was John Flanagan, born on February 6, 1829 to Thomas and Sophie (Turnage) Flanagan. John Flanagan established his buggy company in 1866. It became quite profitable. Upon his death on July 10, 1902, his son Edward Gaskell Flanagan took over the company. In November 1907, Edward Flanagan built a new factory (picture available) on the corner of Fourth and Cotanche streets. He manufactured buggies there until 1914, when the factory became a Ford, Oakland, and Buick dealership. The site later became a parking lot.
