Dillon – South Carolina


SC Picture Project  |  Dillon
Dillon is located just six miles below the North Carolina border, near the famed South of the Border amusement park. The town sprang up in 1888 around a new rail line out of Florence. In its heyday, the region grew cotton and tobacco, accumulating enough wealth to build opulent structures like the Dillon County Courthouse. Dillon’s many classic homes and restored buildings speak of a population respectful of its roots. As the focal point of the town, Dillon’s Main Street features many reminders of times past. For one, the railroad still dominates the streetscape, as Dillon boasts one of a handful of Amtrak stations in South Carolina.
