The Marion Street Area Historic District is significant for the architectural resources it contains. The district reflects the architectural styles popular during the period of its development with the shift from one style to another clearly visible. The district also is significant as it represents the development of a new residential neighborhood for Rock Hill during a period of growth resulting from the city’s emergence as an industrial and trading center. Earlier houses on Marion Street were mostly adaptations of the Victorian, Classical or Colonial Revival styles. By 1915, several houses showed a mixture of elements from that period and the emerging Craftsman/Bungalow style. There are 29 contributing properties and six noncontributing properties. The bulk of the district developed between 1906 and 1925. The Marion Street area became home to members of the growing middle-class population sprouting from the development of institutions like Winthrop College and from the increasing need for professional and merchant services to support the booming textile industry. Listed in the National Register June 10, 1992.
