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.

Hello Marie, we do not have the specific information on Jordan Hood but we think your best bet would be to contact the Pelzer SC Historical Society for more information. We found this contact information online: Community of Pelzer Historical Society, 864.947.8817, email: Thanks!

I am seeking information on the Jordon Hood family from your area. Do you know anyone who may have information about the road across from the Lickville Presbyterian Church? Jordon Hood was my direct ancestor. Much appreciation in advance.
