Scotland County was formed in 1899 from part of Richmond County. It was named for Scotland (part of the United Kingdom.) Highland Scots comprised the majority of the early settlers of this area (as early as 1729). The County seat is Laurinburg. The county is divided into the following townships: Laurel Hill, Spring Hill, Stewartsville, and Williamson. The spelling of Laurinburg has varied over the years with spellings such as Laurinburgh, and pronounced “Laur-in-boro”. The name came from a prominent family, the McLaurin’s.

Today Scotland County is home to several points on the Civil War trail: Richmond Temperance and Literary Society Hall, Old Laurel Hill Church, Downtown Laurinburg, Richmond Mill Pond and Stewart-Hawley-Malloy House. Other points of interest are the Laurinburg Institute, Stewartsville Cemetery, John Charles McNeill House & Memorial Garden and the beautifully restored 1890′s John Blue House. In fact the John Blue Complex contains several other older structures of interest. (From their website: “This beautifully restored 1890s structure was home to one of Scotland County’s most famous residents. This self-educated inventor had a major impact in farming through the creation of the first cotton stalk cutter and the revolutionary John Blue Cotton Planter. Other historic structures on the grounds are the Jones- Lytch Cabin (circa 1800), the Shaw Cabin (early 1800s), and the McNeill Cabin (mid-1800s). There is also a pre-Civil Ware cotton gin and press, as well as a miniature passenger train that delights history buffs of all ages.”)
