Raining Cats And Blogs: Silent Saturday - Old Stone Church In Clemson SC

Silent Saturday - Old Stone Church In Clemson SC

Old Stone Church is located in Clemson, SC and was built in 1802. The church was constructed of field stone and mortar over the period from 1797 to 1802. It was a simple building with wooden pews and a pulpit. The Old Stone Church and Cemetery is on the National Register of Historic Places. The church was built by Revolutionary War hero Andrew Pickens. Although the church is no longer in service, there is a cemetery on site that contains numerous old tombstones including those of Pickens and his family. I will have some photos for tomorrow of the cemetery.

Here is a link to tomorrow's post which is about the cemetary: Speechless Sunday - Old Stone Church Cemetery in Clemson SC

Really fascinating stuff.  The Jeffcoat family supposedly settled in South Carolina (Orangeburg and Lexington Counties) in the mid 1750s.  It is interesting to see what certain structures looked like during their early years there.

Interesting photograph. I never would have guessed it was a church.

Good Morning Shelia, a very interesting old church.  In this area the oldest church only dates back 150 years. It is however, still in use every Sunday.

The stone work on this one is excellent!

Myrl - wow .. you know your history well... :) did you ever live in this area?

Ted - it is small for a church and no steeple.. but if you look in the windows, it looks like the inside of the church on "little house on the prairie".. I know I just dated myself with that one... :)

Tom - It is a pretty little building.. i love the shutters on it.. :)

Dan - 150 is still very old.. I guess this one is just too small to still use..

Michele - Thanks.. have a great Sunday yourself!!

Hi Sheila, I love this old historic buildings and it is wonderful that they are preserved for us and other generations.  Even just loooking at it, takes us back in time.

I love buildings with history & many times I wish that our churches were still this intimate as some of them you just get lost amongst.  I agree it does make us feel like we can travel back in time.  Thanks for sharing.  Seeing it is in Clemson.. 

I know this is a long shot, but I went to high school with two people that transferred because he because one of the football coaches for Clemson  Ronnie West & his wife Becky.  Ronnie also had a twin brother named Donnie.  I am not sure if they are still there though..  So, you took me back in time in both arenas.  I will look forward to the great "history" of those tombstones...

No Sheila, I never lived in your area.  I've pretty much been a California girl all my life.  My understand is that our branch of the Jeffcoat family moved to Georgia, and then on into Texas, and then during the Great Depression splintered once again and settled in California.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) over 6 years ago

Toni - thanks.. :)

William - it is really cool to sit in this area.. it almost feels like you can hear the voices of the past talking to you.

Pam - hmmm.. Don't know the West guys... But glad you liked the history :)

Myrl - one of the smart clans that moved west ... :) I hope to move to CA in the next few years myself!
