SC 179 #1: Appeared in 1933 as a renumbering of SC 178, running from US 52 near Moncks Corner to the village of McLellanville just east of US 701. There may have been a gap between US 701 and the Berkeley County line which was filled by 1935.

In 1947, SC 179 east was truncated to SC 511 (now SC 41) Jamestown, leaving behind S-8-4, S-10-10, S-10-11, a bit of US 17-701, and S-10-9. West of US 17 is now SC 45.
In 1949, SC 179's west end was moved to the current US 52-17 ALT split north of Moncks Corner, and straightened out east to SC 45. The original SC 179 used today's S-8-343, S-8-342, S-8-360, and Spring Pond Rd at SC 45.
In 1950, SC 179 was renumbered as part of SC 64. Today it is part of US 17 ALT.
