Happy Home Baptist Church – Allendale, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Allendale County Photos | Happy Home Baptist Church
Happy Home Baptist Church is located in the heart of Allendale. The congregation was founded shortly after the Civil War, when it met under a brush arbor in the Wood settlement of what was then Barnwell County.
Some years later, the congregation moved to the Zion Branch community near Old Allendale, where members built their first sanctuary and adopted the name Zion Branch Baptist Church. They continued to worship there until 1875, when a new sanctuary was constructed and renamed Happy Home Baptist Church.
The current structure, a brick Gothic Revival building, was constructed in 1911, replacing the wooden frame sanctuary. Happy Home Baptist Church received its state historical marker in 2011.
