Duncan is a beautiful place to live. The community is growing and the schools are great! James F Byrnes High offers great academic and athletic opportunities. We have BMW near which is great for the workforce! I am proud to

Duncan has a nice small town feel while also having easy access to major interstates, local restaurants, and recreational activities. One thing it is lacking, however, is entertainment. There are no movie theaters, bowling allies, fun parks, or anything of the sort.
Duncan is a small town in Spartanburg, SC the people are very nice, the public school systems are excellent. But, there isn't much to do around here for fun, but it is close to Spartanburg and Greenville where there are lots of things to do. Duncan is a growing town, many companies are moving in and there are many housing developments being built here. Duncan is home to the James F. Byrnes High School Rebels which is a fantastic school.
