Faith Cabin Library

Built in the 1930s, this is one of the few remaining examples of the libraries built for African-Americans in South Carolina and Georgia by the Faith Cabin Libraries. The organization was founded by Willie Lee Buffington, a poor white mill worker from Saluda. Buffington went on to graduate from Furman and became a Methodist minister. His organization from the 1930s to 1950s started more than a 100 libraries with more than 200,000 donated books.
