From the historical marker, “Established on Edisto Island about 1686 by Scotch dissenters, this is the second oldest Baptist organization in the South. For many years a branch of First Baptist Church in Charleston, Euhaw declared itself a separate church in 1745 after relocating to this vicinity from Edisto Island. A sanctuary was built 6 mi. NE in 1751; it burned in 1857. The first sanctuary on this site was built in 1860. It burned in 1904 and was replaced by the sanctuary in 1906, which is still used for occasional services. The present sanctuary nearby was built in 1982.”
The church was built for the wealthy planters who used Grahamville as a summer home. The sanctuary was built to hold over a 1000 people, most of those seats being taken by the enslaved people of the church members.
This website identifies this as the Sardis School and that it is a Rosenwald School. I do believe it is a Sardis School since the Sardis CME Church shares the same land. However, the build date of the 19040s, and the style, indicate it is not a Rosenwald School.
This is the Warren Academy which used to sit next to Mount Olive Church. Founded in 1875, it was one of the few schools in Jasper County at the time. I have been unable to determine the relationship between the church and school, but I am assuming that the school children attended both the church and school.
