McGill built a large log house around 1832. – Rev. E. B. McGill, 1955
City Directories and History: The McGill family was one of York County’s early pioneer settlement families, who have continued residing in the Carolinas. Several of their family homes have been previously moved to Historic Brattonsville for preservation. The magnificent log cabin and others featured on this page are from three remaining houses that straddle the York and Cherokee County line.
