(Front):This crossroads, long owned by the West family, is the junction of the Georgetown and Porter Bridge Roads, both of which appear on Robert Mills's 1825 Atlas of S.C. In early 1865 opposing forces camped nearby as Gen. M.C. Butler's Confederates attempted to slow the advance of Gen. W.T. Sherman's Federals toward N.C., and fought a brief skirmish here on February 25th.

The boyhood home of Donald H. Holland (b. 1928), Kershaw County lawyer and legislator, once stood 300 yds. E. Holland, a graduate of the University of South Carolina law school, served as a state representative 1951-54 and 1957-64, as a state highway commissioner 1964-68, and as a state senator 1969-present, serving as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee 1995-present.
