City Directories and History: R&R has divided the 1939 SCDOT map of Saluda County into (19) sectional maps. Many of the individually listed schools and churches shown on this section are pictured. However, in many cases, the individual site also has its own post on R&R, which often provides added information and image. Be wise and use the search function to locate all of the entries for this and other homeplace listings.
Hickory Grove, not far east of Epworth, was originally the home of Richard Griffin and its name came down through many transfers of ownership.
