South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Colleton County Photos  |  St. James the Greater Catholic Church

St. James the Greater Catholic Church is located just south of Walterboro in the small community of Ritter. This African American congregation dates back to 1826, but the first church wasn’t built until 1833. The current church (pictured below) was completed in the late 1930s and is the third to serve the congregation.

I'm curious how the crossroads of Ritter got its name. Anybody know?

Here is a phone number for the church. Hopefully, someone there can answer your question. Good luck!
