Graham Methodist Church – Pomaria, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Newberry County Photos  |  Graham Methodist Church

This abandoned church tucked in the woods of Pomaria was built around the late nineteenth or early twentieth century, according to its Victorian features and construction details such as square nail heads and circular saw marks. The name of the church likely reflects the owners of the land on which it sits or the family which mainly comprised the congregation – or both. It served as the primary Methodist church for Pomaria until 1968.

Methodism underwent several changes within its denomination in the United States after being introduced to the country in the eighteenth century. The denomination called the Methodist Episcopal Church formed in 1784. In 1844 the Methodist Episcopal Church, South formed after a group split from the Methodist Episcopal Church over the issue of slavery. The two groups rejoined in 1939 to form the broadly-named Methodist Church, and in 1968 the Methodist Church joined with the Evangelical United Brethren Church to create the United Methodist Church, which today is Methodism’s primary denomination.

The congregation of Graham Methodist Church decided to shutter its church doors following the formation of the United Methodist Church. Details, such as where the group worshiped after 1968, remain unknown. We would like to make this page better. Do you have information about Graham Methodist Church that you would like to share?
