Pee Dee Region – Marlboro County
Marlboro County has always been one of the richest agricultural counties in South Carolina and it is said that land sold by the pound rather than the acre. It was once one of the state’s wealthiest counties, and those gracious days are preserved in Bennettsville’s and surrounding town’s Victorian and Greek Revival homes. Bennettsville, Clio and Blenheim are stops on the South Carolina Cotton Trail™ and life during these grand times is reflected in historic districts and scenic farmlands. The Blenheim Mineral Spring was discovered in 1781 and for generations people came from nearby towns to drink the water.
