History & History Related Items

Darlington history:

It is said that Darlington was named for Colonel Darlington of Revolutionary War fame, but the theory is not certain. It was first chartered in 1835.

Darlington has the distinction of having its own "local war" back in 1894 called the "Darlington War." This was a citizens' revolt against anti-liquor regulations. This regulation allowed private homes to be searched without a warrant. The state militia was sent in to quell the fray.

Darlington also has extremely fertile soil for the raising of tobacco crops, providing the largest crops in South Carolina. At one time cotton was king in Darlington, but tobacco replaced it as early as 1899. Though tobacco was a large industry, it, too, began to fade and by 2008, there was no market for tobacco in Darlington. Ironically, cotton is still an important part of the economy with a cotton gin and a cotton seed oil mill both still operating.
