Creation: SC 130 appeared in 1936 or 1937 as new primary routing running as a stub from US 76/SC 13-24 (now S-37-1) to Newry. This is the only SC 130.
Adjustments: In 1942, SC 130 was extended north as new primary routing to end at SC 183 (now S-37-15).
In 1959, SC 130 was extended south replacing US 76-123/SC 28 to end at the relocated US 76-123/SC 28 near Seneca. Also in 1959, SC 130 was rerouted at its north end replacing S-37-45 to end at SC 183 near the Seneca River bridge. The old route to SC 183 became S-37-38.
In 1970, SC 130 was altered to accomodate Lake Keowee by being put on almost entirely new construction to avoid Newry entirely and end at SC 183 west of the previous endpoint. This left behind Major Rd, Newry Rd, Broadway St to Newry; in Newry SC 130 used River Ridge Rd, then Fish Pond Ln/abandoned routing along the Little River to the current SC 130 causeway; under the Lake; the stub of S-37-38 that juts northeast back to SC 130; current SC 130; S-37-6
In 1976, SC 130 was extended north with SC 183, then replaced S-37-45, S-37-24, a bit of SC 11 Bus in Salem, and S-37-171 to end at SC 11.
About 1987, SC 130 was extended north over S-37-171 to North Carolina.
In 2000 (AASHTO), SC 130 was extended south to downtown Seneca, replacing US 76-123 Business/SC 28 Business to end at SC 59.
Improvements: SC 130 was paved to Newry in 1939.
SC 130 wasn't paved anywhere else until 1959!
SC 130 was multilaned upon its xtension into downtown Seneca.
Comment: SC 130 serves Whitewater Falls, tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi. The parking area is reached on the right just across the border off NC 281.
SC 130 is in a 3-way tie (with SC 11 and SC 37) for the last primary route to be paved in South Carolina.
SC 130 runs along the east edge of Lake Keowee and also passes right by the Duke Power Nuclear Plant along with SC 183.
