Mt. Hebron United Methodist Church, Lexington

Abstract

Mount Hebron was organized in 1800 in the home of a German settler by the name of Martin Hook. Rev. Henry Sechrist, a pioneer Methodist preacher, led the organization. A small log house was build at Half-Way Ground, between Granby and Kennerly’s Ferry on the Saluda River. In 1837, John and Elizabeth Roof gave four acres of land for the purpose of erecting a new sanctuary. This building was used until 1907, when a second church was constructed. The current sanctuary was constructed in 1963. Source: SCDAHhttps://digitalcommons.wofford.edu/umcschistoric/1122/thumbnail.jp
