Bullocks Creek - First settled area in York County. Only a church, some remnants of buildings and a very large graveyard remain. The graveyard is worth investigation. The most important figure in Bullocks Creek was Dr. Joseph Alexander, the pastor who organized the church and an academy which once existed here. The academy was attended by a  very young Andrew Jackson who later became the seventh President of the United States. Travelers coming up what is now highway 49 would cross on a ferry for Pickneyville (no longer standing, was once being considered for the Military school that became West Point) and go on their way to Charleston. Many men from Bullocks Creek enlisted with the Patriots to defend the cause at Kings Mountain. The battle at Kings Mountain has always been considered a turning point in the Revolutionary war.

A church and countryside farms and a few houses are all that remain of Bullocks Creek. A reminder of a more prosperous past, this old house seen from highway 49 stands mute testimony that nothing lasts forever. Follow highway 49 into Sharon.
