Rock Hill is the largest city in York County, SC and the only major South Carolina city in the Charlotte area.
Rock Hill earned its name in 1852, when the Charlotte/Columbia/Augusta Railroad line was being constructed through the area. Rail crews encountered a small, flinty hill and dubbed the spot “Rock Hill.” A U.S. Post Office was established during that year, marking the official beginning of the city.
The railroad brought business into the area which thrives as a result. The village was incorporated in 1892.
Rock Hill's City Hall was dedicated in 1992 and a time capsule was buried in front of the building. The time capsule is to be opened in the year 2092.
