Arnold Friedheim (1836-1915) Shortly after the Civil War, four brothers of the Friedheim family came to Rock Hill: August, Julius, Samuel, and Arnold. This plot was purchased by the family for the use of their family and other Jewish families. It was originally separated from Laurelwood by a fence, but is now incorporated into the cemetery. Julius, August, and Arnold Friedheim were merchants. Friedheim’s store on Main Street, rebuilt in 1898 after a fire, was the largest mercantile in Rock Hill. It is now the Wells Fargo Center.
