Kingstree Photos – Williamsburg County, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Williamsburg County Photos  |  Kingstree Photos

Situated right on the edge of the Pee Dee, Williamsburg County is home to the historic town of Kingstree. Its name comes from the “King’s Tree” – a particularly tall white pine marked for the King of England. The king reserved such trees to be used as masts for the British Navy.

Kingstree was originally known as Williamsburgh Township, founded in 1732. The area was settled as an effort to provide a buffer between Native Americans and white colonists along the coast.
