This list began with WPA Church record inventories in Allendale listed in Côté (Local and Family History in South Carolina, Richard N. Côté, Easley, SC: So. Hist. Press, 1981, 498 pages).  It has been augmented by many.  If you have additions, histories, descriptions, contacts, and cemetery inventories, please send them for inclusion.

Côté identified the predominatly African American churchs with the designation "negro" which I have removed because someone objected to the nomenclature.  If you are of African American descent, I would appreciate it if you would send me comments on this issue.   Should I change published text to fit the current vernacular?  I have left books with their original language.
