Former Hermon Presbyterian Church Building

446 South Dave Lyle Blvd.
Rock Hill, SC 29730
(803) 327-6015

The church building which dates back to the 1890s is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Although architecturally significant--the brick building is dominated by a three-story bell tower--Hermon Presbyterian Church has also played a valuable role in the history of the community. Founded by former slaves in 1869, it provided educational opportunities before the public schools were open to African-American children. This building was sold by Hermon Presbyterian Church prior to the construction of a new worship center on Heckle Boulevard. The new owner is restoring the structure and plans are to use it for a center of community activities.
