The White Rose City
Originally named "Fergus Crossroads" after a local tavern owned by the Fergus family, "Yorkville" was incorporated in 1841. Nearly 75 years later, the residents of the town voted to shorten the name to simply York.
The city's nickname of "The White Rose City", stems from England's 15th Century War of the Roses which took place between the "White Rose City" (York) and the "Red Rose City" (Lancaster).
In the period leading up to the Civil War, York boomed and its population swelled to near 2,000. Like many towns in South Carolina at the time, cotton was king and grown throughout the area.
While no Civil War battles of meaning took place in the area, a very large number of the men served in the Confederate Army. The area did not embrace reconstruction efforts, was a hot bed of Ku Klux Klan activity, and the most violent county in the state. Ultimately, President Grant sent the Eighteenth U.S. Infantry and Seventh U.S. Cavalry to maintain order in the area.
Today, cotton is still king in York with several mills and textile manufacturers still using locally grown cotton in their products.
