and was built in 1910. However, the congregation itself, dates to at least 1804. It was organized by early
German settlers in the Barnwell District (Now Allendale County) and was probably associated with Mt.
Pleasant Church in Ehrhardt, which dates to 1750. There were several locations before finding a

That church burned, but materials from it were salvaged to build the existing structure. The Old St.
Nicholas Cemetery is located about a third of a mile away off S.C. Hwy. 641.
