CARMEL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH CEMETERY (1820), Pickens County, SC
One of the earliest churches to be formed in Pickens County, SC was Carmel. After the Treaty of Hopewell was signed the up-country of South Carolina was opened for settlement, and the Scots-Irish Presbyterians from Pennsylvania and Virginia arrived.
Carmel was moved to the current location about 1814, but it is now a Baptist Church.
The church still exists and is located at SC 135 and Carmel Church Road not far from the Pickens-Anderson County line.
