Previous SC 900's: SC 900: Appeared in 1941 or 1942 as new routing. Ran from SC 9 west of Mt. Croghan northwest to the North Carolina line at SC 920 (current S-13-32). SC 900 was 6 miles long.
In 1948, SC 900 was downgraded to S-13-30.

Creation: Opened as new state route in 1930 or 1931. Originally ran from SC 9 near Richburg north to the York County Line. See the 1932 Official Map Scan below.
Adjustments: In 1933, SC 901 was extended north to US 21 (curr SC 72-121).
In 1940, SC 901 was extended south to its current end (SC 22 then), mostly as new routing, but did replace the original SC 223 stub in Faifield County.
In 1949, SC 901 south was truncated to SC 97, leaving behind a secondary road.
In 1950, SC 901 south was re-extended to SC 200.
Between 1974-79, SC 901 north was extended to SC 5 on the new Heckle Bypass.
In 1992, SC 901 was extended north over more new road as the Heckle Bypass to SC 161-274.
Improvements: Origianl SC 901 was fully paved by 1938. The southern extensions were fully paved by 1950. SC 901 is multilane only on the Heckle Bypass and its SC 9 multiplex.
Comment: Forms a southwest bypass of Rock Hill. SC 901 was the highest number in use for South Carolina between 1930-1939.
SC 901 (1932)
SC 901 (1942)
SC 902  not currently assigned
Previous SC 902's: SC 902: Appeared in 1936 as a new primary route. Ran as a short connector between SC 265 and SC 9-903 White Bluff Crossroads in the Taxahaw area.
In 1949, SC 902 was extended north over what had been part of SC 9 to end at SC 9 west of Pageland, giving SC 902 its longest length at 12 miles.
In 1951 or 1952, SC 902 was renumbered as part of US 601, which it remains today.

Comment: I drove this in 1989 and have no specific recollections about it...
SC 903 (1942)
SC 904  not currently assigned
Previous SC 904's: SC 904: Appeared in 1937 or 1938 as new primary routing. Ran SC 9 (current SC 9 Bus) Loris north to Tabor City, NC (at US 701 Bus crossing).
In 1940, SC 904 was extended south as new routing to Allsbrook, then southeast to SC 905 Hickory Grove, for a total length of 21 miles.
In 1948, SC 904 was truncated back to its original Loris-Tabor City routing, leaving a secondary road to Allsbrook (now US 701) and S-26-19 from there to Hickory Grove.
SC 904 was eliminated in 1950 when US 701 was rerouted from today's SC 410 to today's US 701 and the Tabor City US 701 Business. Note that today's NC 904 is a morph of the NC 904 that met up with SC 904.
SC 904 (1942)

 
 
SC 905
From: US 501 US 701 Conway (Horry County)
To: NC State Line near Longs, Horry County (continues as NC 905 to NC 130 near Whiteville, NC)
Total Length: 25.4 miles (SC+NC 905 = 45 miles) 
ROUTE LOG
US 501, US 701: 0 - 0
US 378: 0.1 - 0.1
US 501 Bus: 0.8 - 0.9
SC 22: 12.4 - 13.3
SC 9: 8 - 21.3
NC STATE LINE: 4.1 - 25.4
Creation: Opened as new state route in 1937 or 1938. Originally ran from SC 9 Longs west for 10 miles to around the community of Shell.
Adjustments: In 1939, SC 905 was extended west over new routing to US 501-701 in Downtown Conway.
In 1941 or 1942, SC 905 was extended east from SC 9 to the NC State Line (although NC 905 did not appear for a number of years later). Also, SC 905 was extended west through Conway with US 701 south, then west across new routing to end at today's S-26-24 in Dongola. This gave SC 905 a length of 33 miles.
SC 905 (1942)
In 1948, SC 905 was reduced to run from Conway to Longs. This left a secondary road from SC 9 to NC, and S-26-29 west of Conway.
Around the 1957-58 timeframe, SC 905 was re-extended east from SC 9 Loris to the North Carolina Line.
By 1964, SC 905 was extended out to the Conway Bypass, replacing a piece of US 701.
Improvements: Fully paved by 1948. Perhaps 4-lane through Conway, but nowhere else.
Comment: Not much happening with SC 905. Simply a road connecting through east-central Horry County.

 
 
SC 906  not currently assigned
Previous SC 906's: SC 906: Appeared in 1937 or 1938 as new routing, as a 9 mile spur east off SC 9 (curr SC 9 Business) Lancaster to Dwight Crossroads.
In 1939, SC 906 was extended as new road east to SC 9 west of Pageland, totaling 20 miles.
In 1951 or 1952, someone noticed SC 906 running a straighter path between SC 9 (curr SC 903) in Lancaster and SC 9 (curr US 601) in Pageland, so SC 906 was replaced by SC 9.
SC 906 (1941 Esso)
SC 907  not currently assigned
Previous SC 907's: SC 907: Appeared in 1937 or 1938 as new routing. Ran from SC 9 (curr SC 9 Business) Chester northwest for 6 miles.
In 1939, SC 907 was extended as new routing 7 more miles to the York County Line.
In 1941 or 1942, SC 907 was extended northwest to SC 91 (current SC 49).
In 1951 or 1952, SC 907 was extended north again, as new routing to Hickory Grove, then as a replacement for SC 5 from Hickory Grove to Kings Creek, where SC 907 ended at the new version of SC 5. This made SC 907 about 32 miles.
SC 907 was renumbered as SC 97 between 1962-64. Today, the southernmost part is US 321 Business only, but the rest is still SC 97.
SC 907 (1942)
SC 908
From: US 378 Brittons Neck Lookout Tower (Marion County)
To: SC 41 (Marion County)
Total Length: 7.5 miles  
ROUTE LOG
US 378: 0 - 0
SC 41: 7.5 - 7.5
Creation: Appeared in 1939 as a renumbering of part of SC 90. Ran as it does today, except its endpoints were SC 90 and SC 175.
Adjustments: None
Improvements: Fully paved by 1948. No multilane sections
Comment: SC 908 was once the way to go to run from Conway to Lake City, as the straight shot across southern Marion County didn't exist prior to 1939. Today it is just a swampy connector around Brittons Neck.
SC 908 (1942)
SC 909
From: US 321 Lowrys (Chester County)
To: SC 9 near Rodman (Chester County)
Total Length: 13.8 miles  
ROUTE LOG
US 321: 0 - 0
SC 72, SC 121: 9 - 9
SC 9: 4.8 - 13.8
Creation: Opened as new state route in 1940. Originally ran from SC 9 (S-12-41 today?) near Rodman west to US 21 (curr SC 72-121) Lewis.
Adjustments:In 1941 or 1942, SC 909 was extended in both directions as new routing: south past SC 9 3 miles, just past the community of Knox; also, west past US 21 over to Lowrys, then southwest across SC 907 (curr. SC 97) and SC 9 to end at today's S-12-42. SC 909 was 23 miles long at this point.
SC 909 (1942)
In 1948, SC 909 was restored to its 1940 routing, US 21 to SC 9. This left behind S-12-35 on the Knox extension, an unknown secondary route between Lowrys and Lewis, and S-12-29 for everything west of Lowrys.
In 1951 or 1952, SC 909 was re-extended west to US 321 at Lowrys. Between Lewis and "Old York Rd" (S-12-1) was new routing, as from S-12-1 to US 321 was a replacement for US 321 (original SC 16).
Improvements: Fully paved by 1948. No multilane sections.
Comment: SC 909 has 3 turns to make in its path from end to end. I have never driven any of this route, so I don't have much to offer...
