This picture of the Prince Frederick’s Episcopal Church (also known as the Old Gun Church) was taken in 1959 before the majority of the church was torn down. Its ruins can be found near Plantersville in Georgetown County.
The church was named in honor of Prince Frederick of Wales, the son of King George II. Construction was completed in 1876, and the church became a focal point of religious life for early Pee Dee settlers. Its tower and front facade are all that currently remain (see a picture of the Prince Frederick Church ruins).
