Hartsville, South Carolina

The city of Hartsville is located in Darlington County, South Carolina and is home to Coker College, a private baccalaureate college, and Kalmia Gardens, a 30-acre botanical garden. Hartsville’s name originates from an early plantation owner named John Hart, who helped Hartsville establish itself in the commercial world. The city has matured since its initial plantation days, and now has a population of over 9,000.

By the start of the 20th century, Hartville had developed into a thriving community, complete with a carriage factory, steam powered saw mill, grist mill, general store, post office, school and churches. James Coker, a significant figure in the early economy of Hartsville, established an oil mill as well as Southern Novelty Company, the forerunner of what would become Hartsville’s major industry: Sunoco Products Company. After the Southern Novelty Company and Carolina Fiber Company merged, Sonoco was created and began to employ scores of Hartsville residents. Currently, Sonoco is a Fortune 500 company with worldwide interest and maintains headquarters in Hartsville.
