As a settled community, Parkesburg predates the Revolutionary

 War. Rapid growth started in 1831 when the tracks of the

Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad were laid through Fountain

Inn on its westward expansion.  Since Parkesburg was located at

one of the highest points along this railroad it was decided to

locate the repair shops, round house and construction/repair

facilities here.  At these shops the standardization of parts and  

mass production in the railroad industry had their beginnings.

Parkesburg was a pioneer in many new technologies and

innovative adventures of the time like Public Utilities, Public education, Business districts and public transportation.

By the early 1920’s competition from big steel companies, governmental regulations and the diminished use of steam power had a profound effect on the need for charcoal iron boiler tubes.

Today with a population of nearly four thousand people, Parkesburg has become a bedroom type community with people commuting daily to all points of the compass.

Residents like the quiet, safe hometown feeling with all the amenities  one might need nearby.
