“A welcome stop South of Rock Hill……”
City Directories and History: South of Rock Hill on Hwy. #72, below the Crawford School, is Passmore’s Grocery Store, started in ca. 1935 by Mr. Matthew Passmore. In 2017, the store remains active under the management of great-grandson, John Black. Passmore’s history can’t be distinguished from much of the rural history of that whole Hwy. 72 corridor leading through the Black Jack section. It is relevant to the story of local schools, people, churches and the historic route, “The Saluda Trading Path” which it faces hundreds of years after early settlers walked into what is today S.C.
