Steele Hill AME Zion Church

6021 Charlotte Hwy.
Lancaster, SC 29720
(803) 285-7850

This church was organized in 1870 to meet the spiritual needs of the community north of the town of Lancaster. For quite a while, prayer meetings were held in different homes. On February 10, 1880, four and eleven tenths acres were sold to the Board of Trustees by Mr.A. W. Heath to be used for a church and educational purposes only. The first worship service was held under a brush arbor, similar in design to the one that exists today at this location. In 1885, the first church building was constructed. Steele Hill is known for its great camp meetings held annually in September. Growing in membership, Steele Hill is creating a spiritual foundation of love, peace and harmony.
