SHEDding Some Light On Our History

The-Dutch-MillThe Tool Shed is a Greenville, SC landmark located on Poinsett Highway. The original building was constructed in 1950 to be a skating rink. The old Dutch Mill Restaurant was on a small triangle at the front of the property.

After the skating rink closed the building went through a series of names including Poinsett Auditorium, Village Barn and Blueridge Playhouse. It was rented out for gospel singing groups, Motown groups, dances, weddings, wrestling matches, etc. With its open interior space, wood floors and distinctive barrel roof it became well-known in the area. Many of our customers still get nostalgic remembering fun times they had here in the past.

The Tool Shed purchased the building in 1978.  The original showroom covered 1,500 sq. ft. with a few pallets of tools laid out in the warehouse. Today, you can walk through our 15,000 sq. ft. store on the original hardwood floors and see why we call it the toy store for big boys.
