Lickville Presbyterian Church – Pelzer, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Greenville County Photos  |  Lickville Presbyterian Church

Lickville Presbyterian Church owes its unusual name to its location in Pelzer near a spring known as the Lick. This little white church was organized in 1880 by Mrs. Ellen C. Woodside with the help of Reverend C.L. Stewart, who conducted services in a one-room schoolhouse on Woodside’s farm until this frame building was constructed in 1882.

Reverend Stewart continued serving Lickville Presbyterian until 1895 and again in the twentieth century from 1905 through 1921. The church has been remodeled twice – in 1944 and 1968 – and currently has about 45 members.
