Gillisonville Baptist Church – Jasper County, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Jasper County Photos | Gillisonville Baptist Church
This church is one of the last remaining buildings in the old town of Gillisonville, located in Jasper County. The town was burned in 1865 by Sherman’s Army, who etched “War of 1861 & 62 & 63 & 64 Feb. 1865. This is done by a Yankee Soldier,” into the church’s communion silver.
Gillisonville Baptist Church was built in 1838 and is listed on the National Register of historic places. It was constructed by local craftsmen and still has many of its original features like boxed pews, random width flooring, and a slave balcony in back.
Michael Stroud of Bluffton took this picture in January 2008.
