Rock Hill in York County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
East Town Neighborhood
When the White family began selling off their farm, new neighborhoods sprang up in the place of cotton fields. North Confederate Avenue (originally called Pine Street, later called Academy) was first opened in the early 1890s. In 1904 the White family sold the area around present day Reid Street, and houses were being built later that year. This area at the time was called "Whiteville." As one of Rock Hill's earliest neighborhoods, the East Town neighborhood continued to move further to the east, encompassing the original farm owned by Ann H. White's family.
