York County, South Carolina
Fast growing South Carolina real estate in York County is a region of homes in Charlotte North Carolina’s Greater Metropolitan Area. Homebuyers are relocating to the cities and towns of Rock Hill real estate, Tega Cay, and York, the county seat.  The largest city of Rock Hill SC homes is less than 10 miles from Loop 485 around Charlotte.  Smaller towns such as Fort Mill, Clover, Hickory Grove, McConnells, Sharon, and Lake Wylie have a more rural feel.

Homebuyers are relocating to York County South Carolina homes for the high-quality lifestyle.  York County is popular for its top South Carolina schools, skilled workforce, active and participating citizens, and verdant environment.  It is the second-largest county included in the Metropolitan Charlotte real estate area with estimated population in 2009 at over 225,000.  

York County is in north-central South Carolina along the North Carolina border, with the Catawba River on the eastern boundary and the Broad River to the west.   The county extends over approximately 700 square miles of the Piedmont region.  Rural areas are heavily wooded, especially the western portion.  

Rich cultural influences give depth to York County’s attractions and mores.  A visit to The Culture & Heritage Museums offers stories of past eras in one of the oldest settled areas of the nation.  Historic Brattonsville, McCelvey Center, Museum of York County, Future Museum on the Catawba River, and Children’s Museum in Old Town Rock Hill have much to offer.  Modern day fun is also waiting at the Carowinds Amusement Park, a family destination.

York County School System operated some of the top schools in the state.  Beginning in the year 2000, the entire system began a long process of reform. 

Responsibilities of its four districts include: 

•District One serves central and western York County and York
•District Two serves northern York county and Clover
•District Three serves the southern portion and Rock Hill
•District Four serves eastern York County and Fort Mill

In addition, seven private schools operate in the county.  Three institutions of higher learning are located in Rock Hill: Winthrop University, York Technical College, and Clinton Junior College.

A sustainable economy with balanced growth includes a stable manufacturing arm and diversified interests.  Once traversed by the Catawba Indians who lived near the rivers, York County endured the Revolutionary and Civil wars to see modern industrialization.  The electrifying of the Catawba River by building a series of dams gave birth to the textile and furniture industries in the area.  The coming of the Kings Mountain Railroad Company route to Charlotte and the South Carolina Railway at Chester spurred the growth of Rock Hill as a major transportation center.
