The Trinity United Methodist Church is located along Boulevard Street in Orangeburg. This traditionally African – American church was established in 1866, and served as the headquarters for the Orangeburg Movement during the 1960s. The church hosted many civil rights meetings and rallies attended by leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Roy Wilkins, and Thurgood Marshall.
It is listed in the National Historic Register and its historical roadside marker was added in 1996.
