Target United Methodist Church – Holly Hill, South Carolina

This little white church in Holly Hill was part of the Methodist preaching circuit in the early nineteenth century. Founded around 1800, the congregation originally met outdoors, a common early practice for new churches in rural areas. The church’s members finally built a frame building in 1830, which was replaced by another one in 1873. A third building – the current church – was completed in 1920.

The church gets its name from its location near the Target Branch of Four Hole Swamp. Tar was harvested here, as were turpentine and timber, and the name is thought to have derived from the phrase “tar gates”. Target United Methodist Church still has an active congregation.

Do you have an old copy of the History of Target Church? I would love to purchase one. If a book store might have it, would you let me know where I might get a copy. Sincerely, Cissy
