Editor’s Note: The Five and Dine restaurant in Rock Hill, South Carolina that is featured in this article closed for business on December 30, 2018. It was home to the old McCrory’s lunch counter made famous by the Friendship 9 in the early 1960s. More about about the events that made this former lunch counter in Rock Hill so famous can be found in the article below.
It isn’t often that you can sit on the very seat belonging to someone instrumental in changing history; or the very seat that generations of families have occupied for a century. But at the lunch counter in the former McCrory’s Variety Store in the Old Town of Rock Hill, you can do both!
