The Canaan United Methodist Church Cemetery is located on the north side of Bull Swamp Road, .9 mile east of SC-692 (Redmond Mill road).
The Church has also been labeled (incorrectly) 'Cannon Church.'
The picturesque Canaan United Methodist Church was prosperous and active from the late 1800's/early 1900's until about 2005, when the congregation merged with St Mark's United Methodist Church, 8502 North Rd, North, SC (at Airbase Rd.)
There are more than 100 graves in a large area behind and extending east of the boarded up church church building for 100 yards.
There are fresh flowers on numerous graves, including many permanent flower displays on the older graves. Many of the older monuments are partially unreadable, but date from the late 1800's.
The cemetery is still active as of Summer 2010.
