Inscription. Anglican services were held on Waccamaw Neck by 1737, with a chapel built on land purchased from Percival Pawley. All Saints Parish, Waccamaw, created out of Prince George Winyah Parish in 1767, was the third Anglican parish created in present-day Georgetown County. Though the parish declined somewhat after the American Revolution it was revived soon afterwards.

The parish church of All Saints Parish, Waccamaw, has stood on this site since 1737. A brick Greek Revival sanctuary built in 1843 burned in 1915 and was replaced in 1917 by a church replicating that design on a smaller scale and which was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. The present sanctuary was built in 1988.

Also see . . .  All Saints History. “All Saints Parish, Waccamaw was established by the Colonial Assembly of South Carolina in 1767. George Pawley and William Poole purchased 50 acres of land from Percival Pawley in 1745 to be used for the building of a Parish of the Church of England. The name Waccamaw comes from a local tribe of Indians who inhabitated the area prior to 1730; their arrowheads and jewelry were found along the Waccamaw River and are on display in local museums.” (Submitted on March 14, 2009.)
