A brief history of the town follows:
The Town of Cottageville has its own flower. According to a local historian, this flower was originally know as Sweetheart Japonica. One of them, which had a brilliant sheen, was bright red and semi-double, was named by a Walterboro horticulturist in 1945 in honor of the lady who grew and developed it at her home in Cottageville. She grew camellias during the years she waited to marry her sweetheart.
