Town of Mount Croghan

55 Burch St.
Mt. Croghan, SC 29727
(843) 634-3810

Mount Croghan is one of the three oldest towns in Chesterfield County. Cheraw and Chesterfield are the other two. It is named for the hill around which the town was built, and dates back almost two hundred years to 1780 and the Battle of Camden. Mount Croghan got its name from Major Croan, a French officer who was famous during the Revolutionary War. While traveling to Virginia after the Battle of Camden, Major Croan made his camp on a hill just above the present site of Mount Croghan and gave it this name. By 1809 Mount Croghan was a voting precinct and had a post office. The town was almost completely destroyed during the War, but after many decades, it is now a growing community.
