The population was 868 as of the 2010 census.HistoryIn the early 20th century, the Chesnee Land Company bought a sizeable acreage at what is now Chesnee. A leading member of the company was John B.

She married Alexander Vernon, also born in Scotland. The Clinchfield Railroad ran an excursion train over the newly laid rails to Spartanburg on October 23, 1909.The Chesnee post office was established in 1910, and the town was chartered in 1911. Early businesses included a hotel, pharmacy, cotton mill, and lumber mill.The Cowpens National Battlefield and Zeno Hicks House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.GeographyChesnee is located near the northeast corner of Spartanburg County, and a small part of the city extends east into Cherokee County. U.S. Route 221 passes through the city as Alabama Avenue and Hampton Street, leading north to Rutherfordton, North Carolina, and south to Spartanburg. South Carolina Highway 11 (Cherokee Street) crosses US 221 in the center of town and leads west to Campobello and east past Cowpens National Battlefield to Gaffney.
