City Directories and History: This research collection of 20th century Rock Hill maps, was shared with R&R by the Galloway Collection for research purposes, associated with the rich history, of Rock Hill, S.C. The maps were originally owned by the People’s Bank and Trust, located on Main Street and used as part of their insurance department to verify structures were worth insuring and changes to said structures. They are a remarkable collection of 43 individual maps, showing streets and homes, in mainly the downtown and Oakland corridors. Each map is associated with a neighborhood or small segment of the city as described. The maps themselves were originally printed in 1926 but through constant updates, the maps also depict changes in streetscapes until the late 1950s.
Explore history, houses, and stories across S.C. Your membership provides you with updates on regional topics, information on historic research, preservation, and monthly feature articles. But remember R&R wants to hear from you and assist in preserving your own family genealogy and memorabilia.
