Woodruff SC has a rich history, just like many of the other towns and cities in South Carolina. The earliest landmark in the area was The Church of Christ on Jamey’s Creek, chartered in 1787. The creek that the church was named after is now called Jimmie’s Creek. People came from all over the state to attend the church. The man who bought the land that is now Woodruff had two sons, one of which was named Thomas Woodruff. Thomas dreamed of making Woodruff into a town, and his two sons made that dream a reality, but he did not live long enough to see it happen and his sons named the town after him. The town was officially chartered in 1874, and that’s when people started coming to the town to establish their businesses. 1885 marked the official installation of the town’s railroad, and the town hasn’t stopped changing and growing since.
Today, Woodruff has a population of 4,100 people and offers so much to its residents. There’s a farmer’s market once a week in the warmer months until the end of September.
