An excellent piece of preserved antebellum history. It was well worth the short trip back into the woods to see what was left of the town of old Pickens. I was impressed with the historic medallions in front of the church and the the small covered area explaining the significance of the church and its location. It is possible to see the slave balcony from the windows ....only accessed from a separate entrance on the side of the church. I read the history of the preservation of this church and noted the lifelong commitment of many people and the generosity of Duke Power to make sure that it stands as a learning experience for current and future generations. The cemetery is a reminder of our mortality....and an appreciation for the struggles and challenges of previous generations. The very grounds were a part of the Native American Trail, the graves belong to the Scots Irish people who settled the SC frontier....and the balcony reminds us of the enslaved people who suffered and yet built a nation whose freedom they did not enjoy for over 200 years. I loved this place....it is sacred ground on many levels.

Really nothing special about this place at all that we could see, grant it we just did a drive-by, but saw no reason to leave the car.

This is a historic church dating back to the 1700 hundreds. There are a bunch of confederate soldiers and family graves there and a lot of historic information to read.

Don't expect too much

What is most impressive is what used to be here, 100+ years ago, and isn't any longer. A group of people have worked in keeping the old church structure intact, but the County Seat of Old Pickens is long gone.

Fantastic Piece of History

A great place to visit for those with Scots-Irish/Ulster Scot roots, and for anyone interested in history. This is a well-preserved Presbyterian Meeting House from the early days of the country. A must see, along with the Old Stone Church in Clemson.

For Serious History Buffs
nov. 2016 • Par
I would say this destination is best for serious history buffs. Anyone who just wants entertainment is not going to be impressed. If you do enjoy history - it is a definite worthwhile visit. Not hat much to see other than the old church and cemetery. And the church is definitely historic. I would not make a special trip just to see but if you are in the area, worth a stop by. An unexpected side benefit is the site provides an amazingly good view of Oconee Nuclear Station that you cannot see from any other location.

Nice little place to visit

We stopped by here on a whim, just based on the roadside signage. We were pleasantly surprised. The church was closed, but very cute...and it looked like it would be lovely on the inside. The cemetery was also really interesting, some really, really old burials (early to mid 1800's), several civil war soldiers, etc. Definitely worth a few minute side trip!

Love old buildings

The church is very interesting, but the cemeteries are remarkable. Some of the graves go back to the Revolutionary War. Great signs talking about the history of the town that is no more. Docent was very nice too. Recommend going any time other than the summer. We will go back in the fall and have a really good look around.
