The Rock Hill Body Company building is significant for its association with the early development of the textile industry in Rock Hill and also for its association with the important automotive manufacturing business of Rock Hill. The Rock Hill Body Company is a two-story brick industrial building built ca. 1915 as a textile mill (Victoria Yarn Mill #2) and was the home of the Rock Hill Body Company from 1938 to 1986. The Rock Hill Body Company became one of the earliest makers of truck bodies and school bus bodies in South Carolina and for many years was one of the largest producers in the Southeast. Changes to the building after its purchase by the Rock Hill Body Company include a one-story office addition on the facade, an elevator tower addition on the rear, and the original flat roof has been replaced with a metal roof structure with a gradual slope from a center ridgeline. Listed in the National Register March 6, 2008.
