Historic Shocco Creek

In June 1764, Bute County was formed and named in honor of John Stuart, third Earl of Bute. He served as the king’s advisor and eventually became prime minister. By the late 1760s, the Earl of Bute had become very unpopular, with many blaming him personally for instituting the 1765 Stamp Act.

With the declining popularity of the Earl of Bute and of the Crown, as well as the increasing county population, support grew for the division and renaming of Bute County in the mid-1770s. Following the Provincial Congresses of 1775 and 1776, Bute County representatives proposed an act to divide their county. After two years of discussion, Shocco Creek became the dividing line between Franklin and Warren counties. In remembrance of this important event in the history of Franklin County, the Shocco Creek Chapter was organized.
