“Historic Churches of SC:

 A Photographic Essay by

Bill Segars”


One of the older churches featured in this photographic collection is that of  John’s Island Presbyterian Church.  Located in Charleston county, this congregation was established in 1710 and the building was erected in 1719.  Made in the classic meeting house style, this building is the oldest wood frame Presbyterian church in the United States.

Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church

3061 Wesley Chapel Road, Lydia

            This church was erected in 1908 by J. E. Moon.

1st Presbyterian Church

213 West Home Avenue

The local Presbyterian congregation was established in 1867 and the church was built in 1913.  The exterior is brick in the Gothic style.  This is a very strong building due to granite trim and buttresses, and a slate roof.  The architects for this building were Henry E. Bonitz and J.E. Stack.

Wesley United Methodist Church

Located at 145 E College Avenue, this was the first brick building in the newly started-up town of Hartsville.  The sanctuary was built in 1903 at a cost of about $8000.  It is Gothic brick in style and was well ahead of other churches with its crenellated tower and stained glass windows.
