Local library in historic building

The 1855 charter of this small municipality refers to the town as "Honey Path." It was allegedly name for William Honey, an early trader and large landowner in the area. In 1917 the town was incorporated under the name "Honea Path," perhaps because the writing in the early document was so illegible that the "y" was read as an "a." In 1908, Honea Path was the smallest town awarded a library from the Andrew Carniegie foundation. Visitors to Honea Path can discover its history by visiting the town's people, its buildings and the surrounding rural farmlands.
