Pageland, South Carolina


South Carolina Chesterfield County Pageland


Pageland is located in northwestern Chesterfield County just a few miles from the North Carolina state line and halfway between the City of Chesterfield and Lancaster in Lancaster County. A few families lived in the area as early as 1788, but it bloomed as a town when the Cheraw & Lancaster Railroad laid tracks and built a depot in 1900.

A surveyor was hired to lay out a town surrounding the depot. Residential lots sold quickly to newcomers attracted by the railroad's presence. In 1907, citizens applied for incorporation and chose to name their town Pageland in gratitude to Adolphus High "Dolly" Page, the C & L railroad company executive who was responsible for choosing the location of the depot.

This area of the state is known as The Sandhills and the sandy soil is particularly well-suited for growing melons and peaches. Pageland hosts the Watermelon Festival each July to celebrate this summertime treat during the peak of its season.

Cheraw is the largest city in Pageland's own Chesterfield County but Lancaster is closer. Here are maps of the Cheraw area and of the Lancaster area.
