The McCormick Story
We’re Sittin’ on a Gold Mine
About 1850 gold was discovered where the town of McCormick now stands. The Dorn Gold Mine, which later also produced manganese, was bought by Cyrus McCormick in 1869; he donated land for the town, which was named for him in 1882. This mine continued to operate until the 1930s.
Several prominent South Carolinians have resided in the area that is now McCormick County, including governor and U. S. senator George McDuffie (1790-1851), Unionist leader James Louis Petigru (1789-1863), and Moses Waddel (1770-1840), who taught many of the future leaders of the state at his Willington Academy.
A message from our mayor
“McCormick is a unique place that offers the quiet traditional quality of life with nature’s amenities at your side. Whether your idea of outdoor adventure is an open window drive, touring historical sites, or a family trip, kayaking down the scenic Little River, central to these activities is Baker Creek State Park, which offers 100 camp sites, all on the Little River Blueway. If you like sports, you can play golf and stay at Hickory Knob Lodge and Restaurant.”
– Roy Smith, Jr.
