The Holly Hill Depot is an official site along South Carolina’s National Heritage Corridor.
It was built in 1921 on the site of two previous train depots dating back to 1886.
The railroad defined the location of the town’s business section, and it was responsible for the town’s growth and official founding in 1887.
Today, the beautifully restored depot serves as the eastern Orangeburg County office of the Tri-County Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Holly Hill Visitor and Information Center, a mini-museum and as the community center.
Referred to by some as the “biggest little town in South Carolina,” Holly Hill was built around a grove of holly trees. The last trees from the grove, estimated to be about 98 years old, were removed in 1957.
The Holly Hill Depot is located at 8603 Old State Road. Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
