Richburg, South Carolina


South Carolina Chester County Richburg


Richburg is located in Chester County at the convergence of US 9, SC 901, and SC 223.

In the mid-1800s, a New York preacher with followers all along the East Coast made predictions that the world would come to an end on March 15, 1843. Believers in Chester County selected a high elevation from which to watch the cataclysmic event. They built temporary shacks and waited obediently for the appointed day to come.

Only the rich could afford to stop work and live on accumulated supplies of food. The less wealthy people in the community were scornful and called the settlement of shacks "Rich Hill." When the night of March 15th passed without incident, the followers lost faith in their prophet. By then, however, they'd found Rich Hill to be a pleasant place to live. They began to construct permanent homes.

South Carolina already had a town by the name of Rich Hill, in Lancaster County, so when a post office was established, the name of the town was changed to Richburg.

Richburg is midway between Chester in Chester County and the City of Lancaster in neighboring Lancaster County. Here are maps of the Chester area and the Lancaster area.
