The South Main Street Historic District consists of eleven residences constructed between ca. 1880 and ca. 1925. The district is the best remaining concentration of historic residential architecture in Bishopville. The district evolved after 1880 when the community grew as a cotton shipping and trading center, and later as a county seat. Many of the houses along South Main were built by the town’s merchants and government officials. The district contains a fine grouping of late nineteenth and early twentieth century residences reflecting the vernacular Queen Anne, Colonial Revival and Bungalow styles. While there are small groupings of turn-of-the-century residences in Bishopville, the South Main District is the largest and most cohesive center of historic residential architecture in the community. Listed in the National Register January 9, 1986.
