Abner Creek Baptist Church-Spartanburg County, South Carolina

This log cabin home was moved to the cemetery of the modern Abner Creek Baptist Church. According to the church’s website, William and Sarah Hendrix who had built a log cabin home and obtained several land grants in the Abner Creek area invited their neighbors into their home for the purpose of organizing a church of their own so they would not have to travel so far and could attend more regularly. There were not many houses and they were far apart. After meeting several times, 21 people thought it was an excellent idea and committed to supporting the church and became charter members. Thus Abner Creek Baptist Church was born on September 26, 1832!
