City Directories and History: The Rock Hill Herald on May 16, 1903 reported, “Ms. Julia Thornwell returned to her home in Fort Mill from Salter’s Depot where she has been teaching school.”
Salters, an unincorporated town located off U. S. 521 on Secondary road 19, was named for Captain John A. Salters who owned the land on which the town was located and who had procured the right of way for the construction of the Northeastern Railroad (later Atlantic Coastline, now Seaboard Coastline) in 1851.
