Stay Involved

One of the best ways to stay involved with Historic Rock Hill is to read our monthly eBlasts! They are a great way to see what Historic Rock Hill is doing, get information on upcoming events, and learn about exhibits and programs!

Our March eBlast just went out. Click below to see what's coming up at the White Home!

Oldest house in Rock Hill?

So what is the oldest home in Rock Hill? A lot of people assume that the answer to that is the White Home. After all, it's older than the city itself, Ann White owned a good portion of the land that became downtown Rock Hill, and it's just a big old looking house! The White Home was built in 1838 (and 1840s, & 1870s) but years before that, a farmhouse was built a few miles away.

In the early 1800s, Stephen McCorkle built a two-story, symmetrical farmhouse with a wood shingle roof. Over the years many changes were made, including additions in the 1880s of the Victorian era elements, like the decorative Eastlake brackets and the saw-tooth shingles to the front facade as well as a central gable. 

To learn more about the house (since the house is about to celebrate its 200th Birthday) visit their facebook page: "Friends of the McCorkle-Fewell-Long House!
