Welcome to Bennettsville, SC where I was born and raised. I will always have love for the big city of Bennettsville which is the largest city and county seat of Marlboro County, SC and where the 2000 census recorded a population of 9,425.

As you can see in the sign, The city was founded in 1819 and named after Thomas Bennett, Jr., then governor of South Carolina.

We have a couple of notable natives in Hugh McColl, former president of the Bank of America and Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children's Defense Fund.

There's a lot of beauty and historic buildings in this small town which I hope to capture when I visit again in the Spring.,_South_Carolina []
