South Carolina Highway 47 (SC 47) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It serves to connect the town of Elloree with U.S. Route 301.

Route description[edit]

SC 47 is a two-lane rural highway that connect the town of Elloree southwest to US 301, located at Goodbys Swamp. The predominant features along the route is farmland; in Elloree, the downtown area the road is divided with parking on driver's right-side.[2]


Established in 1930 as a new primary routing, connecting SC 4 (currently US 301) and SC 45 (currently SC 6/SC 267); it is also the second SC 47. The entire highway was paved by 1938. In 1940, SC 47 was extended north, in concurrency with SC 6, to Lone Star, then northwest to SC 26 (currently US 601), near Singleton. In 1948 it was reverted to its original and current routing, leaving behind Lone Star Road (S-9-11).[3][4]

The first SC 47 was an original state highway (1922) that traversed from SC 40, in Green Sea, northwest through Nichols and Lake View, before entering North Carolina. By 1926 was renumbered to SC 94.[citation needed]
