It is an arts center that contains the 2100 seat Peace Concert Hall, 400 seat Dorothy Hipp Gunter Theater, and the Dow Brands Amphitheater located beside the Reedy River. It hosts over 300 events each year, including classical music, Broadway shows and appearances by popular artists such as Bill Cosby and David Copperfield. There are four resident companies: Greenville Symphony Orchestra, Carolina Ballet Theater, South Carolina Children's Theater, and the International Ballet.The Peace Center is named after the local Peace family who donated $10 million towards its development. The center was opened in 1990 and is built on the former site of three dilapidated factories - one building wagons for the Confederate Army, a textile plant built in the 1880s, and a building serving as the home for Duke Mayonnaise.
