This is the site of a "Dissenter" meeting house, built ca. 1726 by one of the first Baptist congregations in S.C. outside of Charleston. It was founded by Rev. Elisha Screven (d. 1754). The elder Screven had founded a Baptist congregation in Charleston as early as 1696.

Presbyterians and other "Dissenters" who did not belong to the Anglican church were also allowed to hold services here. Presbyterians soon outnumbered the rest. By 1742 they built a new church 7 mi. N and named it Black Mingo Presbyterian Church. The historic cemetery here has lost most of its gravestones.
