High Hills Baptist Church (1772)
Meeting House Road, Stateburg, Sumter Co., South Carolina
High Hills Baptist Church, founded in 1772, occupies a plot of land granted to the congregation by General Thomas Sumter. The present building, erected in 1803, is a distinctive landmark in the Stateburg area with its simple green-and-white painted frame structure. High Hills Baptist grew into a strong and influential church under the dynamic leadership of the Reverend Richard Furman, the pastor from 1774 to 1787.
