south carolina's historic churches
a word or two from bill
What is the definition of a historic church, temple, mosque or synagogue? It's a question I considered in some detail as I traveled tens of thousand of South Carolina miles.
Churches that are listed on the National Historic Register certainly fall into the classification. So do those that "contribute" to a designated "historic district," as do those sacred spaces that has one of those big metal historical marker signs.
Finally, there are "other notables," that is churches that are or have been historically important, whose members may not have the time, inclination or resources to pursue historical listings.
So please, drop me an email if you have an off-the-beaten-path church in mind.
Also, if you have historical information that might be of benefit (please remember there will are around 500-600 historic churches in the state), please let me know that as well.
