Dials Methodist Church – Gray Court, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Laurens County Photos | Dials Methodist Church
The church is named for Martin Dials, a Laurens native and veteran of the Revolutionary War. Its first congregation, known as the Dials Methodist Society, was organized at Dials’ home in 1808 by Bishop Francis Asbury.
The congregation grew rapidly and soon began meeting in Dials’ log cabin near Rabun Creek. In 1835 a new meeting house was constructed on land donated by Dial and the name of the congregation was changed to Dials Church. The present sanctuary, which is located on the same spot as the meeting house, was constructed in 1860.
