SC state boundary disputed

  • Follow Latest News

ROCK HILL, S.C. — A committee trying to hash out where the state line lies between North Carolina and South Carolina is meeting again.

The Joint Boundary Commission meets Friday in Rock Hill and will hear from residents affected by the group’s new survey of the state line. The panel could suggest ways to help ease the bureaucratic nightmare those people face.

The state line between the Carolinas had not been surveyed in more than 230 years, and this recent survey using modern methods found several places where the line was off by a few hundred feet.

Authorities say 93 property owners, mostly near Charlotte, N.C., have found themselves in another state.
