The committee on house invitations and memorial resolutions
To who was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S.695) to request that the Department of Transportation name the new bridge over Pine Tree Creek just south of Camden in Kershaw County "Pine Tree Hill Bridge" and erect, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
DENNIS C. MOSS for Committee.
A concurrent RESOLUTION
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME the new bridge over Pine Tree Creek just south of Camden IN Kershaw COUNTY "Pine Tree HIll Bridge" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THE DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the settlement known as Pine Tree Hill was established in 1758 when Joseph Kershaw, acting as an agent for the Charleston mercantile firm of Ancrum, Lance & Loocock, opened a store on Pine Tree Creek, a tributary of the Wateree River; and
Whereas, located on the path between Charleston and the Catawba Nation, Kershaw's store was a convenient place to collect and process local produce, especially wheat, before it was forwarded to Charleston. This allowed the village of Pine Tree Hill to develop as a milling and trading center; and
Whereas, within a decade, Pine Tree Hill was a thriving settlement and was renamed in honor of Charles Pratt, Lord Camden, a champion of colonial rights, and a formal plan was drawn up to guide development. In 1791, Camden was the second town in the State to be incorporated by the General Assembly of South Carolina; and
Whereas, it would be only fitting and proper to pay tribute to this settlement of South Carolina by naming a bridge in its historical proximity in its honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the new bridge over Pine Tree Creek in Kershaw County "Pine Tree Hill Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing the designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and presented to the City of Camden.
