City Directories and History: R&R has divided the 1939 SCDOT map of York County into (28) sectional maps. Many of the individually listed schools and churches shown on this section are pictured. However, in many cases, the individual site also has its own post on R&R, which often provides added information and image. Be wise and use the search function to locate all of the entries for this and other homeplace listings.

The Yorkville Enquirer reported on Nov. 11, 1891 – “Mr. Kaylor who lives on the Catawba River six or eight miles from Rock Hill had his barn and several hogs destroyed by fire. He was absent from home at the time but his wife managed to get the horses and mules out of the stable.”

Richard Kee posted on FB 12/11/15 – “I was born in that community and attended first grade at the school at the top of the hill behind the church mentioned earlier. I still have my first-grade report card. Mrs. A. H. Kaylor was my teacher.”
Please enjoy this structure and all those listed in Roots and Recall. But remember each is private property. So view them from a distance or from a public area such as the sidewalk or public road.
