Cemetery notes and/or description:
From Kings Mountain, take 161 toward Bessemer City. After crossing over into Gaston County, turn right on Lewis Farm Rd. Cemetery and Church are about 2 miles out on the left.

Long Creek Presbyterian Church sits on a hill in Gaston County, North Carolina, in a rural area between Bessemer City and Kings Mountain.

A rock wall wraps around the church yard and another frames the cemetery across the road.

The generally accepted date for an organized church at Long Creek is 1780, the year the Battle of Kings Mountain was fought. The earliest marked grave in the cemetery here is that of Joseph Blackwood, dated October 22, 1780. Tradition says that he was wounded in that battle of October 7, and died a few days later.
Land for the church was given by Benjamin Ormand, whose Grandfather, James had received a land grant from King George II in 1754.
