The Rock Hill Historical Marker booklets cover events that helped shape both Rock Hill and the country.

The January 27, 2007, September 6, 2007, and November 30, 2007 historical markers discuss the “sit-ins” that occurred at popular lunch counters in Rock Hill such as McCrory’s, the “Friendship Nine”, the development of the Rock Hill Cotton Factory along with its creators, and also the development of the Citizen’s Building, US Post Office, the Courthouse, and downtown Rock Hill. The May 15, 2008 historical marker reviews Alexander Templeton Black aka “the Founder of Rock Hill”, the Black Plantation, and Governor Wade Hampton’s campaign.
