Centrally located, Marlboro County is about a two-hour drive from Charlotte, Raleigh, and Wilmington, NC. Established as the county seat of Marlboro County on December 14, 1819, Bennettsville continues to serve as the political and economic center for the county.
In 1819, the town of Bennettsville was established and quickly grew into one of the richest agricultural communities in the state. Legend has it that the land is so rich it once was sold by the pound instead of the acre. Bennettsville's affluent past and lifestyle are captured in the Victorian and Greek revival homes and public buildings. Bennettsville was occupied by Union forces in 1865. The Jennings-Brown House and original Marlboro County Courthouse served as headquarters for Union Major General Frank Blair and General William Tecumseh Sherman during the Civil War.
Today Bennettsville is home to cultural venues, recreation activities and a lifestyle comparable to none.
