Lickville Presbyterian Church – Pelzer, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Greenville County Photos | Lickville Presbyterian Church
Lickville Presbyterian Church owes its unusual name to its location in Pelzer near a spring known as the Lick. This little white church was organized in 1880 by Mrs. Ellen C. Woodside with the help of Reverend C.L. Stewart, who conducted services in a one-room schoolhouse on Woodside’s farm until this frame building was constructed in 1882.
Reverend Stewart continued serving Lickville Presbyterian until 1895 and again in the twentieth century from 1905 through 1921. The church has been remodeled twice – in 1944 and 1968 – and currently has about 45 members.
The historic photo above depicts Lickville Presbyterian at the beginning of the twentieth century before the renovations. The photo below shows the schoolhouse that was on the Woodside property and used for services before the construction of the church. Today, this building is known as the Knight Activities Center.
Many thanks to David Davenport of Lickville Presbyterian Church for supplying the historic photos and much of the information on Lickville Presbyterian Chruch.
