This church building was dedicated in May 1884 by Dr. John L. Girardeau. The congregation of eleven members, including two elders and one deacon, was organized on the Sabbath Day, November 16, 1883, by the Charleston Presbytery. In 1914, the church became a charter member of Congaree Presbytery, moving to Eastover in August 1922.

The eleven charter members of this church were Thomas and Lula B. Auld, Augusta H. Bates, Joseph and Clair H. Bates, Elise H. Dwight, Peter and Isabel H. Garick, Glenn and Hattie H. Kaminer, and Belton A. Williams.
