Rock Hill, South Carolina is a blend of historic charm and implemented expansion. Located in the north-central area of South Carolina approximately 20 miles south of Charlotte, Rock Hill is a growing community of 67,000 residents, and the only major South Carolina city in the Charlotte area. Rock Hill earned its name in 1852, when the Charlotte/Columbia/Augusta Railroad line was being constructed. Rail crews encountered a small, flinty hill and dubbed the spot “Rock Hill.” A U.S. Post Office was established during that year, marking the official beginning of the city. The railroad brought business into the area and the village was incorporated in 1892. Rock Hill’s City Hall was dedicated in 1992 and a time capsule was buried in front of the building. The time capsule is to be opened in the year 2092. The City of Rock Hill is served by Rock Hill Schools and is home to three colleges and universities: Clinton College, Winthrop University and York Technical College. Rock Hill enjoys a robust park system including numerous trails, gardens, playgrounds, a tennis center and disc golf course. A thriving dining, shopping and industry destination, Rock Hill is one of the fastest growing areas in South Carolina today.
