St. Marks Episcopal Church, Pinewood, South Carolina

St. Mark’s Parish was established in 1767 by the South Carolina Assembly Act. The church was built during the same year near Summerton; however, it was burned by the British during the American Revolution. It was the parish church for several family plantations: Manning, Milford, Richardson, and Bloomhill. At least six governors regularly attended services here. The present church (above) was constructed in 1855, which makes it the fourth or fifth church erected by the parish at this location.
