Description

According to local tradition, the congregation was organized in 1786 and visited a number of times by Bishop Francis Asbury. The church stands today on land given by Ellis R. and Mary A. Richbourg in 1880. Bessie B. Parker, first woman to be ordained a Methodist minister in South Carolina, served here from 1959 to 1962 and is buried in the cemetery. Source: SCDAH
