Willington, South Carolina


South Carolina McCormick County Willington


Willington is located in McCormick County.

Willington was known in the early 19th century as the site of the prestigious Willington Academy, founded by a Huguenot minister in 1804. More than a high school but not quite a university, the curriculum included Greek, Latin, and leadership training.

Over the years graduates included William H. Crawford, Secretary of the Treasury under President Madison, Hugh S. Legare, editor of the Southern Review, George McDuffie, Governor and U. S. Senator from South Carolina, and John C. Calhoun, who was elected as US Representative and Senator from South Carolina and as the 7th Vice President of the United States.

The Academy ceased operation after the Civil War. The presence of the railroad in the late 1800s helped Willington gain stability as a market center and shipping stage for the burgeoning cotton crop in South Carolina and Georgia.

McCormick is the largest city near Willington. Here is a map of the McCormick area.
