The Darlington Industrial Historic District is significant as an intact collection of resources which were important in the history of Darlington in the areas of transportation, agriculture, industry and commerce during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The district contains thirteen contributing industrial buildings, structures, and sites which were constructed between ca. 1890 and 1935 and six noncontributing properties. A majority of the buildings in the district were built between ca. 1890 and 1925 when Darlington underwent steady development. All of these buildings are located along the rights-of-way of the S.C. Western Railway and the Charleston, Sumter, and Northern Railway since the industries each of these buildings served employed the services of the railroad. Among the prominent resources in the district are the Charleston, Sumter and Northern Railway Freight Station (1891), the Darlington Roller Mill (1899), Thomas and Howard Tobacco Warehouse (ca. 1901); and Price’s Tobacco Warehouse (ca. 1901), and a cotton warehouse. Listed in the National Register February 10, 1988.
