A little bit of history

The Town of Kingstree acquired its name from  a large white pine which was rare in this area and was a land mark on the banks of the Black River.  King George directed that the straightest and biggest of the white pines were to be marked with an arrow to show they were reserved for His navel stores.  The tall trees were to be used as masts on his Majesty's ships.  They were  known as The King's Tree. 


The Heller House Inn is located in the small town of Kingstree, SC.  Centrally located close to Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Columbia and Florence, Kingstree is the perfect place  to experience small town life and close enough for day visits  to explore any of South Carolina's major cities.
