Creation: An original state route that originally ran from SC 20 (now SC 28) McCormick north through Greenwood, Laurens, Woodruff, and Spartanburg before heading into North Carolina northeast of Chesnee. This is the only SC 10.
Adjustments: In 1923, SC 10 was rerouted at Greenwood to follow SC 7 east to Cross Hill then north as new routing to Waterloo. The old routing became secondary for a time.
In 1925 or 1926, SC 10 was restored to its original Greenwood to Waterloo direct routing, leaving behind SC 7 (now SC 72) and SC 392 (now SC 39 and probably M A Bryson Rd).
Also in 1925 or 1926, SC 10 was rerouted out of downtown McCormick and instead northwest to where it ends now, then duplexed with SC 20 (now SC 28) back to McCormick. The original route became secondary to McCormick, then a little bit of SC 43 (today all of this is US 221).
If SC 10 ever used S-42-813 Joe Barnette Rd/S-42-202 Harris Bridge Rd and S-42-442 Lansford Rd south of Woodruff; S-42-1849 Hardin Rd south of Chesnee it stopped doing so by 1927.
If SC 10 ever used S-11-144 east of Chesnee it stopped doing so in 1928.
In 1928 or 1929, SC 10 was removed from today's lengthy S-42-197 Old Spartanburg Hwy north of Woodruff; SC 290 and Center Point through Moore and placed on today's US 221.
In 1932, SC 10 north was truncated to US 221 Waterloo, with the old route becoming US 221. Today this is US 221; S-30-749 Cedar Grove Ch Rd/S-30-6 Cold PointRd; US 221 through Laurens; Parsonage Rd through Lansford; US 221; River Hill Rd (no longer crosses river ) to Enoree; SC 92; US 221; S-42-425/SC 215/S-42-400 through Roebuck; US 221 through Spartanburg to Chesnee except: Old Whitney Rd; S-42-243 Cherokee Cir and Old Chesnee Hwy; US 221 ALT to North Carolina.

If SC 10 ever used S-24-66 Barksdale Ferry Rd out of Troy or S-24-416 Cedar Grove Rd out of Bradley it stopped doing so by 1932.
If SC 10 ever used S-33-64 near its south end it stopped doing so by 1934.
In 1934, SC 10 north of Greenwood was downgraded to secondary up to the Saluda River by Act of SC Legislature in a mileage swap for SC 67, while SC 10 remained north of the river to Waterloo.
In 1936, the separate SC 10 stub at Waterloo was also removed from the primary system by Act of SC Legislature in a mileage swap for SC 39. It later became SC 409 but today it is S-24-107, a bit of SC 254, S-24-39 and S-30-33.
