Buckhorn UMC - North Central


History

In 1824, a Methodist church was organized near Buck Horn Creek in Laurens County.  At first it was called Darsey Meeting House, but then changed to Buckhorn.  The first building was a log cabin.  In the 1880's a frame structure was erected.  A number of additions have been made during the years: Four Sunday School rooms in 1943, social hall and kitchen in 1963, brick veneer in 1969, and an educational building in 1979.  Buckhorn became a station church in 1975.  Buckhorn is the oldest church in Laurens County.

In order to build and pay for a parsonage, the church members organized a country fair named Possum Hollow in 1975, which paid for the parsonage within three years.  In 1993, a new social hall and kitchen were built and the old social hall remodeled into Sunday School rooms.
