There was a limited system of roads in eastern York County prior to the creation of Rock Hill in 1851. One of the main routes was the Upper Land's Ford Road, which passed this site on generally the route of present-day East White Street and Charlotte Avenue. It connected Land's Ford, a major crossing point of the Catawba River, with Ebenezerville and Yorkville to the west. By 1840 a number of significant homes faced Upper Land's Ford Road in present-day Rock Hill. These homes were originally built on sites leased from the Catawba Indian Nation. Other important roads were the Nation Ford Road, providing connection across the Catawba River to Charlotte and other areas to the north, and the Saluda Road, connecting the area with Chester and Columbia.
