Rock Hill History:
Rock Hill, which was founded in the mid 1800s, was named because of the presence of a small flint hill of rock. During the construction of the Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad, most of this rock was removed to make space for a depot. A post office was established on April 17, 1852, and Rock Hill was officially incorporated in 1892. The railroad brought significant growth and prosperity to the community. The Saint Anne School, located in the cityl, was the first integrated school of South Carolina. Rock Hill was home to the commercial artist Vernon Grant, known for his creation of Snap, Crackle, and Pop, the cartoon mascots of Rice Krispies cereal.
