Trenton Methodist Church – Trenton, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Edgefield County Photos | Trenton Methodist Church
Trenton Methodist Church in the Edgefield County community of Trenton was built in 1874. The congregation is still thriving after nearly 150 years, receiving the Bishop’s Five Star Award for Excellence at the 2013 Annual Conference of the South Carolina United Methodist Church.
Trenton is the birthplace of Governor Ben Tillman as well as the site of his burial at nearby Ebenezer Baptist Church. The town was organized in the late nineteenth century due to the advent of its railroad, which took passengers to Columbia, Charlotte, North Carolina, and neighboring Augusta, Georgia. Originally called Pine House for its stagecoach station, the town received its charter in 1877, the same year it became known as Trenton. This makes Trenton Methodist Church three years older than the incorporated town.
