South Carolina Chester County Lowrys
Lowrys is located in Chester County
on US 321. It was settled in the 1750s by Scots-Irish immigrants who settled first in Pennsylvania and then moved further south.
In the 1840s, the Carolina and Northwestern Railroad laid tracks through the community for its route between Chester
. The town was called Lowrysville for the local "Parson Lowry." Unlike most preachers, he owned extensive property and lived comfortably. Train passengers knew their location when they passed by his large house with the grand white pillars.
At some point, the 's' was dropped from Lowrysville and later, the name of the town was shortened even more to Lowrys.
Chester is the largest town near Lowrys. Here is a map of the Chester area
