Ninety Six

The town of Ninety Six, on an old Native American trade route, is so named for being 96 miles from the Cherokee village of Keowee in the Blue Ridge Mountains—the distance a young Cherokee maiden, Cateechee, is supposed to have ridden to warn her English lover of a threatened Native American massacre.
