Did you know....? The area that is now in Kershaw County was originally part of the Camden district. The county itself was formed in 1791 from portions of Fairfield, Lancaster, and Richland county. Camden, the county seat, was in Lancaster county until then.
This part of South Carolina was first settled in 1758, when Joseph Kershaw came up from Charleston to Fredricksburg (which no longer exists). He set up a store on a 150 acre tract (that wasn't surveyed to him, it belonged to William Ancrum) and called the place Pine Tree Hill. It was in the southeast corner of what is Camden today.
