Old Stone Church

Revolutionary War hero Gen. Andrew Pickens and others built this Presbyterian church in 1797. The sanctuary was damaged by fire and is no longer in use, but stands watch over a fascinating cemetery where many pioneers are buried, including Pickens and his family. Col. Robert Anderson, of Revolutionary War fame, also is buried in the cemetery. Pickens was called Skyagusta, "The Wizard Owl." The greatest Revolutionary soldier of the South Carolina frontier, Pickens was awarded an elegant ornamental sword by Congress for his services at the Battle of Cowpens. On the grounds of Clemson University is one of Pickens' homes, Hopewell.
