Historic Green Book Tour – Cheraw, South Carolina
Among the places with numerous extant Green Book sites is Cheraw, South Carolina, a prosperous town located in the northeastern midlands of the state. Prior to the completion of Interstate 95 in the early 1970s, travelers often passed through Cheraw along U.S. Highways 1 and 52 en route to North Carolina or various destinations in South Carolina. Fourteen Cheraw-area businesses were listed in the Green Book from 1947 through its final edition in 1966. Roughly half of these oasis spaces remain, including the College Inn Restaurant, a family owned restaurant and tavern located in a former Black business district on Second Street in downtown Cheraw.
