Grove Hill Cemetery, the first public cemetery in Darlington, was chartered in 1889. Citizens founded it "on account of the health of our town but also on account of the great scarcity of space in the church cemeteries." The original 26-acre tract on Swift Creek was later expanded, doubling the burial space. In 1896 a half-acre tract was designated as "Darlington Hebrew Cemetery."
