The small town of Cope is located in Orangeburg County. It is named after farmer Jacob Martin Cope, who sold a portion of his land in the 1890s to be used for the town and train depot.

Just a couple of years later, the town of Cope had two churches, many shops, a grist mill, and a cotton gin. This rapid development is proof of just how important railroads were to early growth in our state.

SCIWAY thanks to Pamela Maxwell of Rock Hill for submitting this picture she took February 2011.

Cope – Add Info and More Photos


The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Cope, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
