Ketchuptown is known to be a small homestead, and farming community. During the 1920s farmers in the community about ten miles north of Aynor would say to one another, "Lets go catch up on the news." Every Saturday afternoon would find them at a little country store in Ketchuptown. Highway 99 led east to Loris, South Carolina and southwest to Galivants Ferry, South Carolina. Cool Spring was about ten miles away on Highway 23.
