Creation: SC 327 appeared in 1942 as new primary routing, running from US 52 Effingham to SC 51 Evergreen. This is the only SC 327.
Adjustments: In 1947, SC 327 was extended east as new routing via Claussen to end at US 76-301 at the Mars Bluff bridge over the Pee Dee River.
Although US 76-301 was moved to its modern Pee Dee crossing about 1948, SC 327's north endpoint never moved to meet the modern routing.
In 1957, SC 327 was rerouted above Claussen to continue due north to US 76-301 replacing S-21-89. The old route east to the Pee Dee River became part of S-21-13. The easternmost 0.5 mile of this is no longer a road and is on DuPont Plant Property.
In Aug 1971, SC 327 was extended west along US 76-301 then north as new construction to S-21-24, then replaced part of S-21-601 and S-21-64 to end at I-95.
About 1996, SC 327 was rerouted onto new construction and replaced part of S-21-575 in the Willow Creek area east of SC 51. The old route became S-21-1793.

SC 327 was fully paved in 1957.
SC 327 was multilaned on its US 76-301 multiplex when extended in 1971. The piece around Francis Marion College has been 4-laned for a long time, as well. The section from Mars Hill to I-95 was 4-laned in 1992.
Comment: SC 327 serves as the main way to get from I-95 to US 76 for the ride to Myrtle Beach.
SC 327 did not used to touch US 301 in Effingham, but US 301 was realigned to make the connection in the late 90's.
