The Fort Mill Downtown Historic District is made up of an important collection of commercial buildings that have formed the nucleus of business activity in the town. The buildings provide evidence of the various periods of growth and development in Fort Mill. Twenty-two contributing and four noncontributing resources comprise the district. The district consists predominantly of masonry one and two-story commercial buildings facing Main Street and constructed between 1860 and 1940. It also included Confederate Park and its Bandstand, an important open and public space at the western end of the district. The period of significance of the district begins shortly after the development of the railroad stop at Fort Mill in 1852. The properties as a whole possess historic integrity and provide a record of the development of the downtown area. Listed in the National Register June 11, 1992.
