York County, South Carolina sits just to the southwest of Charlotte, North Carolina. The destination of many Scots-Irish immigrants in the late 18th century, York County is the “most presbyterian” county in South Carolina.

York County holds a prominate place in the history of Scottish presbyterianism in the United States and many Associate Reformed Presbyterian Churches remain there today.

York County is significant in my own family’s presbyterian history as it was the homeplace of my great-grandmother Annis Barron Hopper.
