Facts About McColl Through the Years

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                

          McColl started in 1884 with a railroad stretching from Fayetteville to Bennettsville.

  • 1 store

  • A house or two

  • 1 depot

  • 1 railroad

       The General Store got shipments from the trains, and sold the goods to the people of the town. Without the railroad the town of McColl would have never existed because the General Store wouldn't have had any goods and people wouldn't have chosen to settle there.

     There were once three mills operating day and night. Now most people go to other towns to work.
