Sardis Methodist Church – Branchville, South Carolina

After the war, however, a small log structure was constructed which locals called the “Meeting House.” In 1811, the log building was moved to the northern section of Branchville and renamed Sardis Methodist Church.
Photographer Ann Helms, who submitted the picture above, continues the church’s history: “This church building was completed in 1849 to replace the log cabin. It was built with lumber from the Smoak Lumber Mill. Co-owner E.T.R. Smoak helped build the church, and his faint footprints can still be seen on some of the ceiling planks.”
