Lake City in Florence County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Church Street/Main Street
Before the 1820s this intersection of two major roads, one from Georgetown to Camden and the other from Charleston to Cheraw, was popularly called "the crosswords." After Arron Graham built a house here ca. 1930, the area became known as "Graham's Crossroads." Church Street, the main north-south road through the town until 1924, was named soon after Bethlehem Baptist Church (now Lake City First Baptist Church) was built in 1828.
