Description

According to Robert Mills, early Winnsboro consisted of two “gin factories,” Masonic Hall, Market Hall, two houses of entertainment, a blacksmith and carriage shop, and eight or 10 stores. Bishop Asbury visited here from 1809 to 1814. First UM Church was established in 1808 under the leadership of Rev. James Jenkins, an early circuit-riding minister, and Jon Buchanan, a captain in the Revolution. The current building dates to1908 and is the third structure. Two earlier structures were located about two blocks away. Source: SCDAH
