The water trough which has been placed here is the only known surviving example of troughs once located at several entrances to the Old Town area of Rock Hill. They provided a convenient place for farmers and travelers to water their horses, mules and other livestock as they entered or left Old Town. Rock Hill developed as a major cotton trading center, and farmers brought wagons loaded with cotton and other crops into town. The troughs were welcome stopping points.
