SALEM BAPTIST CHURCH
Organized 1793
Marlboro County, SC

BRIEF HISTORY
by Victoria Proctor, 2006

Salem Baptist Church was constituted in 1793, with its initial membership derived, in part, from members of the "old Welsh Neck" church. Robert Thomas, grandfather of author J.A.W. Thomas, was instrumental in founding the church and ministered to the church at Salem from its organization in 1793 until near the time of his death (1817). Note: A new house of worship was built in 1880.
