Old Town Rock Hill



Old Town is the heart of Rock Hill which includes the City’s historic downtown and the area where Winthrop University, the Textile Corridor and the city’s original neighborhoods are found.

In 2001, the term “Old Town” was coined to identify and market the historically significant area surrounding Rock Hill’s downtown. Years later, the meaning of Old Town, and its importance as an asset to the City, continues to evolve.

We have a diverse arts community engaging in programs at the Center for the Arts and the working artist studios in the Gettys Arts Center. Cultural offerings are supported by a strong arts program at Winthrop University, the York County Library and the Old Town Amphitheater.

The Amphitheater hosts a wonderful selection of spirited, family-friendly activities including theater, dance and musical performances. Annual festivals such as ChristmasVille, St. Patrick’s Day on Main, and the Old Town Blues and Jazz Festival punctuate a year filled with races, parades, fireworks and regular art crawls.
