Sacred Spaces with Bill Fitzpatrick
October 1, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
As the oldest church in South Carolina’s Upstate, Waxhaw Presbyterian Church has a history that begins around 1755 when Scots-Irish Presbyterians from Pennsylvania and Virginia settled in the area. This program will feature stories of its well-known members, including seventh president of the United States, Andrew Jackson; and the Waxhaw Cemetery, listed in the National Register, and significant in its relationship to Revolutionary War Era figures Andrew Jackson, William Richardson Davie, and Andrew Pickens. In addition, the 18th- and 19th-century tombstones are noteworthy examples of bas-relief carvings that illustrate the lives of the deceased.
Reservations are required.
