The rail line which passes just north of this site was the second railroad to serve Rock Hill. Part of the Charleston, Cincinnati and Chicago Railroad (known locally as the 3C's), the first train on this line arrived here in 1888. The 3C's opened access to new markets and made possible the development of Rock Hill's second textile mill, Highland Park, located 0.7 miles east. Rock Hill owes its creation to an earlier line, the Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad which was completed in Rock Hill in the fall of 1851. Soon after, the depot, the post office and a new village were named for a flint-rock hill located in the path of the rail line. No evidence of the original rock hill remains.
