City Directories and History: This was an early lot in downtown Rock Hill and was used as the parsonage for Saint John’s Methodist Church prior to its being moved to the opposite corner where the church had once stood before building the new church on Main Street.
The Herald reported on May 16, 1889 – “Carpenters are tearing down the Methodist parsonage so that it can be reconstructed. Mr. J. G. Anderson was approved by the building committee to superintend the work.”
The RH Herald reported on Nov. 8, 1899 – “Mr. J.H. McFadden has bought the premise on Hampton Street, formerly the Methodist Parsonage.”
The Rock Hill Record reported on Oct. 6, 1924 – “G.W. Harvey, for the past two years Supt. of the Iredall-Jones farm (Strawberry Hill), has rented the storeroom adjoining the Robinson’s Sporting Goods Store on Hampton Street and will open a fancy grocery business.”
