South Carolina Highway 79 (SC 79) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It connects communities in western Marlboro County.

Route description

SC 79 is a two-lane rural highway, traversing 9.3 miles (15.0 km) from SC 9 to the North Carolina state line where the road continues in Gibson, North Carolina as North Carolina Highway 79.[2]


Originally established in 1937 as a new primary route, it connected U.S. Route 78 (US 78) in Denmark, to Voorhees College. In 1938, it was replaced by SC 68, which later became a secondary road by 1948.

The current SC 79 was established in 1938 as a renumbering of part of SC 38, from Bennettsville to the North Carolina state line. Between 1967 and 1970, SC 79 was rerouted and replaced SC 383 to SC 9; the old alignment became SC 385.[3]
