1700 Block of Henderson Street
Site of Hurleyville
Following the Civil War, northerner Timothy Hurley established a community of thirty-two homes for Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad Company employees on this city block that was once owned by the Hampton and Preston families. The former compact community is easily discernable on C. Drie’s 1872 birdseye map of Columbia. Due to late-20th century development, all traces of the neighborhood have been erased.
