This church was formally organized in 1867, shortly after the Civil War, when 285 black members of Cheraw Baptist Church asked and received permission to organize a separate church. The Rev. Wisdom London, the first pastor here, preached from a platform erected on this site until a sanctuary was built. The first church here was destroyed by a tornado in 1912. The present brick church, replacing the original one destroyed by the tornado, was begun in 1912. Pee Dee Baptist has a large and active congregation. View from outside; open on Sundays.
