South Carolina’s Old 96 District

The Ninety Six District was the westernmost district of colonial South Carolina. It was a mostly ignored backcountry border between the Charleston elite and the Cherokees. After years of crime and equally criminal vigilantes, the 1769 Circuit Court Act finally funded a courthouse and jail in the district.

When the American Revolution began, the Ninety Six District quickly became a hotly contested area between Patriots and Loyalists. The newly-built jail was the site of South Carolina’s first Revolutionary War battle and the state’s first casualty of war.

Discover the places where you can explore the Revolutionary War in South Carolina’s Old 96 District, where you can stay, and a few other things to do.
