This congregation was first organized around 1830 by prominent Bryan Neck rice planters including Thomas Savage Clay, Richard James Arnold, and George Washington McCallister. The first church building was constructed three miles from this location in 1839. Its adjoining burial ground is now known as Burnt Church Cemetery. The present church, built in 1885, is the oldest public building in Bryan County.
UPDATE: I made the images seen above in 2011. Visiting in January 2013, I rephotographed it and noticed a sign had been placed on the front of the building (below).
