Historic Estill – Estill, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Hampton County Photos  |  Historic Estill

Estill is located in the southwestern section of Hampton County. In the early 20th century Estill was known as Lawtonville. Devastated by the Civil War and by the poverty that followed, and the town of Lawtonville was dying. That all changed when the Seaboard Air Lines Railroad constructed a rail line through the town. The name was changed to Estill in the early 1900s to honor Colonel James Estill, who was the editor of the Savannah Morning News.

Greetings, Judy. You mentioned your father used to take many pictures of Estill. Is it possible he may have taken any of a man named James Housey? He used to work for Mr. Sam Mcabee at the dry cleaners. My family has experienced difficulties locating a clear photo of him.

Love these old photos. I have wonderful memories and enjoy seeing things the way they were. We had rummage sales in the grove of trees by the Town Hall.

Love this pic. My father, Carl (Choppy) Norton took many pictures of Estill. They are a treasure to all of us who have lived here all our lives. Thanks for sharing this one!
