Can anyone tell me about York, SC? We have been considering Fort Mill, but like old houses and have found one there. We have two elementary school age children, so schools are very important.

Would be working in Charlotte, off exit 5 of I-77.

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Well, hopefully you are not sick of me answering your questions...but here goes.

In regard to York...yes, there is some wonderful old homes there. The area has a charming main street with a great sense of comminuty within the area.

The downside would be your commute (more than likely the old homes you are viewing are within the heart of downtown York). If in fact the home in question is in the downtown area...the brunt of your commute would be on Hwy 49 (which is the same artery that alot of folks from Clover/Lake Wylie also will be using in the morning and evening). On a good day I would say you are looking at close to an hour (one way). There are other sections to York (that are closer to Clover/Lake Wylie) but most of this is newer construction.

Once again depending on where in York this home is would determine the school district too (more than likely it would be York schools, but could be Clover schools too). IMO I would not hesitate to send my children to the Clover schools....but would have to think long and hard in regard to the York schools.

While I don't want to have this come across as a York, SC bashing...let me just say that I really like York alot. In fact if I was retired (or worked out of my home) and the kids were off on their own....I would be checking out one of those old homes myself.

Hi - Bet you are sick of me answering your questions too!!! I was born and raised in York - went to York schools, worked in York to put myself through college, and my family lives all within one block of each other - in YORK! There is a beautiful historic street there called Kings Mountain Street and their historic downtown is quaint and charming. If you are looking for friendly people, this is the place - it's a very close knit community. On the outskirts are fast food restaurants, Wal-Mart, Lowe's etc... Nothing TOO commercialized. From York, you will have a pretty lengthy commute to Charlotte. Lovethecarolinas is very correct in estimating one hour on a good day. Lots of people do it though and don't mind it one bit - it's an easy drive, just a lengthy one. Clover schools are WONDERFUL and York schools are WORKING on becoming wonderful :-) Hope this helps! Talk to you soon, and good luck!
