By Compiled by J. Edward Lee, Ph.D. and Anne E. Beard, Ed.D.

This volume contains both vivid images of Rock Hill's past and a selection of personal histories from a wide variety of citizens, from its Catawba roots to its African-American heritage. Throughout, you will be reminded of a place and time becoming increasingly foreign to today's generations, when lazy Saturday afternoons were spent playing fox and hounds, hop scotch, and gloveless baseball, when doors, both car and home, were left unlocked, and when the week was measured by the social calendar's local parties and dances. Besides these romantic scenes of small-town life, Rock Hill contains compelling stories detailing the devastation of storms, the tense emotions and sacrifices surrounding homefront Rock Hill during wartimes, the excitement of early businesses moving into the area, and the bidding struggle and birth of the city's proudest educational achievement, Winthrop University.
