McCormick is a town in McCormick County, South Carolina, United States. The population was 2,783 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of McCormick County. The town of McCormick is named for inventor Cyrus McCormick. The county was formed in 1916 from parts of Edgefield, Abbeville, and Greenwood counties.This area was settled in the mid-eighteenth century by Scotch-Irish, French Huguenot, and German farmers. Some of the early inhabitants were massacred by Cherokee Indians at Long Cane in 1760, and the British subsequently built Fort Charlotte to protect the region; this fort was one of the first seized by the Americans in the Revolutionary War.About 1850 gold was discovered where the town of McCormick now stands. The Dorn Gold Mine, which later also produced manganese, was bought by Cyrus McCormick in 1869; he donated land for the town, which was named for him in 1882. This mine continued to operate until the 1930s.Several prominent South Carolinians have resided in the area that is now McCormick County, including U.S. Vice President, U.S. Senator, Secretary of State and SC Representative John Calhoun, Governor Patrick Noble, Governor and U. S. Senator George McDuffie (1790–1851), Unionist leader James Petigru, and Moses Waddel (1770–1840), who taught many of the future leaders of the country and state at his Willington Academy.The Dorn Gold Mine, Dorn's Flour and Grist Mill, Joseph Jennings Dorn House, Eden Hall, Farmer's Bank, John Albert Gibert M.D. House, Otway Henderson House, Hotel Keturah, McCormick County Courthouse, McCormick Train Station, and M.L.B. Sturkey House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
