The Black Swamp
Methodist Church

HAMPTON COUNTY

Two miles south of Garnett, in Hampton County, we find one of the oldest Methodist church buildings in South Carolina. It is a very simple white frame building, without steeple, columns, or stained glass windows. It is surrounded by large moss covered trees and shrubs.

The well kept adjoining graveyard is fragrant with gardenias.

This sturdy little church building has been in constant use since its erection about 1790.
