Ebenezer Methodist Church - Anderson County, SC

At the crossroads of South Carolina Highways 185 and 413 in Southeastern Anderson County, sits a quiet old cemetery, complete with a gravel road guarded by a tall old tree.  Tucked in the back corner of the grounds is a well-kept white-siding church with two sets of small parallel stairs with gabled porticos that lead into the lobby.  It could easily be mistaken for an old one-room schoolhouse.

The cemetery and church grounds are part of the Ebenezer Methodist Church.  It is considered the first Methodist congregation within Anderson County - with dates ranging from 1788 to 1800.  The small brick and iron arched entrance to the cemetery reads established 1790.

The simple - yet elegant - church was constructed in 1909 - the fourth place of worship built on the grounds.  The cemetery bridges numerous generations of residents from the American Revolution to the present day.
