Re-enactors known as Star of the West, in conjunction with The Fairfax Society, presented a Patriotic July 1857 Celebration, Saturday, July 5, at historic Fairfax House, located at the intersection of McKnight Road and Manchester in Rock Hill. Donations were accepted to help restoration efforts on the house.

 
In 1832, Virginia brothers James C. and John Marshall, along with their families, settled in the area that would become Rock Hill. In 1839, James Marshall built a two-story home for his bride -- a home he named "Fairfax" after his Virginia birthplace.

 
The home underwent two moves, once in 1941 from its original location at 9400 Manchester Road to 9430 Manchester Road. Then, in 1997, it was moved across Manchester Road to a site next to the Rock Hill Presbyterian Church. The Fairfax House received the "National Register of Historic Places" designation in April 2004.
