Historic Walking Tour
In 1851, Rock Hill was just a railway stop between Columbia and Charlotte. By 1929, a prosperous, progressive city had emerged, with tree-lined streets and beautiful family homes, thriving businesses and artisans, even its own Opera House and the South's best known women's college. But most fascinating were the people who lived here. Explore our town's proud past - a past shaped by Southerners who weren't afraid to grow and change, to imagine a new world for themselves.
