Preserving South Carolina's
Once the center of community life, many of our state's historic churches, both rural and urban, are at-risk. In 2018, we created a Sacred Spaces fund.
These are our accomplishments.
The Gothic-Revival masterpiece is the heart and soul of Abbeville.
In less than three years, we raised nearly $1M, oversaw the work, and reopened the church that had been closed for four years.
Mt. Carmel Presbyterian
In late 2022, we will complete our restoration work on this iconic McCormick County church which is part of the town's Historic District.
Good Hope Baptist
Good Hope, historically connected to Laurelwood Plantation, is listed in the National Register on its own merits. We were able to preserve this church by finding a Black congregation in search of a new church home, and selling the property for a fraction of its retail value.
Mt. Olivet Lutheran
We were able to both find a new owner for this historic church and, with a preservation element, insure that remains, in form, a church.
