Black Oak Church – Pinopolis, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Berkeley County Photos  |  Black Oak Church

Black Oak Church once thrived in the village of Pinopolis in Berkeley County. Part of St. John’s Berkeley Parish, the church was formed in 1808 as a chapel of ease for Biggin Church.

It separated from Biggin Church in 1855 and became its own institution. For many years Black Oak Episcopal Church was a popular place of worship for settlers from England, France, and Scotland. It was demolished in 1941 when Lake Moultrie was constructed to create hydroelectric power for Santee-Cooper, South Carolina’s state-owned electric and water utility. Its ruins are submerged in the bottom of the lake.

Black Oak Church – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Black Oak Church, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
