The brick depot in Dillon was constructed in 1905 by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. The station is most recognizable for the town clock that sits at the entrance of the building. The clock, inscribed with the town name, was installed in 2004 as part of the renovations that included installation of a new brick platform. The new park-like entrance with benches and a garden were constructed as a memorial to the former and future mayors of Dillon.

The city of Dillon started out with a mere 87 people, isolated by swamps and rivers that kept this area cut off for years. However, Dillon gained prosperity when its founding father, James W. Dillon, headed a local movement to allow train tracks to run through the town. The original spot for the rail line was a smaller, neighboring town called Little Rock, but its residents thought the line would do more harm than good. So with a stroke of luck, the Wilson Short Cut Railroad (later part of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad) was built through Dillon and it turned out to be frequently used, bringing much economic development to this small town.

At this time, Dillon was a prosperous town, growing on an economy of tobacco and cotton production. Its affluence can be seen in its large ornate courthouse and industries including Perdue, Wix Corporation, Dilmar Oil Company and SEMC Dillon County. The city motto is “Quietly Progressive.”

Dillon is located in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina, its edge intersecting the Pee Dee River. Though Dillon County is approaching its centennial anniversary, it is still one of the youngest counties in South Carolina. It is now home to the second largest yarn producing factory in the United States, as well as South of the Border, a well-known roadside tourist attraction. Dillon is also known for its Old Cotton Press, the Little Pee Dee State Park and the Dillon County Museum.
