Creation: SC 101 appeared in 1928 as new primary routing, running from SC 10 (now US 221) Woodruff to US 29 (now SC 290) Greer. This is the only SC 101.
Adjustments: In 1937, SC 101 was extended with US 221 through Woodruff, then southwest as new primary routing 7 miles past Gray Court to Bellinger Rd just past today's S-30-54 jct.
By 1940, SC 101 was removed from Old Woodruff Rd S-23-577 in Greer; also put on its current route between today's SC 80 and S-42-12 Brockman McClimon Rd (leaving behind SC 101 ALT which none of this is public road as S-42-12 has totally been changed. The E-W portion of old SC 101 ALT runs over the BMW Fire Dept driveway and the N-S portion uses some of Gateway Dr.); S-42-399 Old Woodruff Rd just north of I-85; Sloan St in Woodruff.
In 1940, SC 101 was shown as projected from S-30-54 southwest to US 76 Princeton.
In 1949, SC 101 was extended north over SC 290 through Greer, then north as new primary routing over S-23-91 to SC 11.
By 1952, SC 101 was extended south as new primary routing to the Greenville County Line, with a projected route still showing to Princeton.
