Dillon County [1] was established in 1910 from the northern part of Marion County, and the town of Dillon became the new county seat. The population of Dillon at that time was 3,000. The business of government joined the growing community and in 1911 the Dillon County Courthouse, designed by William Augustus Edwards, was completed.
