C.L. Cobb (1883-1953) Charles Logan Cobb was perhaps the most influential of any citizens during the period of 1910-1950. Not only was he a Southern gentleman of
character, he was a brilliant financier of buildings, businesses, banking, housing and commerce. His significant contributions to bring industrial development of Rock Hill cannot be overstated – working tirelessly to bring industries such as Celanese to Rock Hill as well as the Bleachery and helping stimulate the growth of Rock Hill through leaving downtown and moving to the early development of Cherry Park on Myrtle Drive.
His extraordinary career was captured by Look magazine, a cover page story, which discovered just what one man could accomplish for his town if his mind was dedicated to it. Rock Hill simply would not be the town it is today if it had not been for the banking and commercial career of C.L. Cobb.
