HISTORY OF LAURENS COUNTY The Cherokee Indians were the original inhabitants of Laurens County. John Duncan (a native of Aberdeen, Scotland) was the first white settler to inhabit the area. He arrived in 1752 from Pennsylvania and settled along a creek in the northeastern section of the county, between present-day Clinton and Whitmire. Scottish-Irish immigrants out of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia became the predominant settlers in this area. During the Revolutionary War, the area that would soon become Laurens County was the site of four significant battles, including Musgrove Mill on August 18, 1780. Today, the Musgrove Mill State Historic Site marks the location of this battle. The visitors center at the park documents the role South Carolina patriots played in winning American independence. The General Assembly passed an act on March 12, 1785, whereby six counties were established out of the Old 96 District. Laurens County was one of those counties. The town of Laurens (known as Laurensville well into the 19th century) became the county seat. Laurens County derived its name from a patriot, warrior and statesman, the Honorable Henry Laurens of Charleston. Henry Laurens was president of the Continental Congress during the Revolutionary War and later served as ambassador to France to secure aid in helping the colonies with their independence.

By 1820, Laurens was known for its tailormade clothes. Andrew Johnson, the 17th president of the United States, came to Laurens in 1824 and established a tailor shop in the town square. By 1840, the area was booming with establishments, including medical practitioners; a fancy confectionery and fruit store; carriage, buggy and wagon shops; tailor shops; building contractors; flour and corn mills; and 81 registered whiskey distilleries. By the end of the 19th century, textiles were becoming very important in Laurens County and the upstate. The Laurens Cotton Mill was established in 1895. Mercer Silas Bailey built the first cotton mill in Clinton in 1896, and both Lydia Mill and Watts Mill were established in 1902. However, over the last several decades, textiles have been displaced by a wide variety of industries, including distribution centers, manufacturing, research firms, automobile parts suppliers and others.

WWW.LAURENSCOUNTY.ORG

During the 20th century, Laurens County gradually grew, remaining predominantly rural in character. Between 1900 and 1950, the county grew from 37,382 residents to 46,974 – a number that has grown to approximately 70,000 in 2010 (according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s QuickFacts).

With its outstanding location, diversified industrial base and unique quality of life, there is no doubt Laurens County will continue to grow and prosper well into the future.

LOCAL STATISTICS Statistically, Laurens County is recognized among the fastest-growing counties in the upstate. According to the latest records, 70,508 people call Laurens County home. Of the residents of the county, 30 percent live in the two main cities of Clinton and Laurens.

Fountain Inn has a population of 7,870 residents. It has a Mayor/Council form of government. While it is part of Laurens County, a large portion of the town is also located in Greenville County.

GRAY COURT Nestled in the northwest corner of Laurens County is the town of Gray Court, originally named Dorroh or Dorrohville in honor of a local family. On October 17, 1899, the name was changed to Gray Court and the town was chartered three days later.

The remainder reside in the smaller communities of Cross Hill, Fountain Inn, Gray Court, Hickory Tavern, Mountville, Joanna, Ware Shoals and Waterloo, or in rural areas.

LAURENS The historic city of Laurens serves as the county seat of Laurens County. Formerly called Laurensville, the first record of the town being called Laurens appears on a charter issued in 1873. Today, residents and guests experience a unique mix of history and modern development. One of the city’s most notable features is the “Laurens Historic District,” a site comprised of the area of the public square and most of the surrounding streets. The district has been placed in the National Register of Historic Places. The city of Laurens has 9,478 residents and is governed by a Mayor/Council form of government.

CLINTON Clinton’s past is traced to the arrival of Scottish-Irish immigrants two decades before the American Revolution. The town itself was officially incorporated in 1852, taking its name in honor of Henry Clinton Young, a lawyer from Laurensville, who helped lay out the first streets. Today, Clinton is the second-largest city in Laurens County, with 8,923 residents. A City Manager/Council form of government governs the city.

10

CROSS HILL The town of Cross Hill is located in southeastern Laurens County, bordered on the east by Newberry County and on the southwest by Lake Greenwood. The area was a north-south Native American path across the fish dams on the Broad River and leading to the fish dams on the Savannah River. Many years ago, someone crossed the first path on a hill and gave Cross Hill its name. Rosemont, the family plantation of Ann Pamela Cunningham, leader in the effort to save President George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon, Va., was located near the community.

Gray Court has a population of 996 residents, according to the 2010 census. The town has a Mayor/Council form of government.

JOANNA

Today the town of Cross Hill is a modest community of 591 residents, and is governed by a Mayor/Council form of government.

Joanna is the largest non-incorporated community in the county, with 1,609 residents. For many years the community was known as Goldville until its name was officially changed on August 1, 1948. During the War Between the States, the community around the railroad was known as Martin’s Depot. On the night of April 30, 1865, Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his entourage spent the night at the nearby Lafayette Young House during their escape from Richmond at the close of the war.

FOUNTAIN INN

WATERLOO

Fountain Inn takes its name from the old inn with a fountain that attracted travelers seeking rest from the tiresome stagecoach journeys between Greenville and the Low Country. It is a charming small town highlighted by landmarks, interesting anecdotes and historic figures. “Peg Leg” Bates, the famous dancer and entertainer, was a native son.

The town of Waterloo is located 12 miles south of Laurens on the shores of beautiful Lake Greenwood. The town was incorporated on December 4, 1885. The small community of 203 residents offers many outdoor sporting and recreational activities. Waterloo is governed by a Mayor/Council form of government.

assisted-living facilities, including Bailey Manor, Langston House, Martha Franks Baptist Retirement Center, NHC Healthcare, Agapé Senior, Clinton Presbyterian Community and the Hospice of Laurens County. For a complete listing, please call the Laurens County Chamber of Commerce. The Hospice of Laurens County was started in 1987 to provide medical, psychosocial and spiritual support to those patients and families in our area dealing with end-of-life issues. In 2008, a new 12bed Hospice Inpatient Facility was built to provide hospice care to those patients who are unable to stay at home. This $5.5 million facility provides state-of-the-art hospice care in an environment that is comfortable, serene and family-friendly. Each large, spacious patient room opens out to a private patio. Family areas include a comfortable family living area, dining area, children’s room, library and chapel. The meditation garden includes outside seating and a relaxing waterfall. Other hospice services are also available to Laurens County residents: Agapé Hospice, Hospice Care of SC and Hospice of Laurens County,
