Elloree, South Carolina
South Carolina Orangeburg County Elloree
Elloree is located in Orangeburg County, west of Santee, on SC 6.
After the Civil War, Elloree was transformed from a settlement community into a town by the industriousness of one man, William J. Snider. He built a store here on the west bank of Lake Marion and had a successful business selling goods that arrived by way of water from Charleston.
Over the years, as Snider added more acreage to his own farm, he also continued to build up the community by opening first a grist mill, then a saw mill, and finally a cotton gin. In 1886, he laid out streets one-half mile in every direction from his store. He donated lots for schools and churches and then began selling homesites to other families.
Orangeburg is the largest city near Elloree. Here is a map of the Orangeburg area.
