Shandon Presbyterian Church — Columbia, South Carolina

SC Picture Project  |  Richland County  |  Shandon Presbyterian Church

Shandon Presbyterian Church in the heart of Columbia dates to 1913 when a group of local Presbyterians gathered to worship and conduct Sunday school. Three years later the group had grown to 53 members and was officially named Shandon Presbyterian Church. That same year the church’s first house of worship, a small brick building, was built on Maple and Wheat streets.

As the Shandon neighborhood developed, the congregation also grew and eventually needed more space. In 1929 the current stone edifice was built on Woodrow Street. Over the years the church continued to expand in membership and building space to become the vibrant community church it is today, supporting local groups such as the Presbyterian Student Association of the University of South Carolina and the oldest continuously chartered Boy Scout Troop in South Carolina. Shandon Presbyterian Church is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, or PC-USA.
