City Directories and History: Architect, Mr. Robert Mills was hired by the State of S.C. to create accurate maps of the state’s districts. In turn, he employed knowledgeable surveyors to survey the local areas, from which he created his finished maps of S.C., districts or counties. This resulted in accurate maps of roads, streams, and cities located in each. Click on the More Information links, (found under the picture column), for an enlargeable county map, a history of Robert Mill’s survey of S.C. counties, written by Gene Waddell in 1980, an index to the names listed on the maps, and enlargeable quadrants for conducting in depth research.
