Regarding Old Brick Church. The Ebenezer Associate Reformed Presbyterian
The following text is taken from the Presbyterian Historical Society website:
Usually known as “the Brick Church,” the present building was constructed in 1788. It was the first brick house of worship in the area. The Associate Reformed Synod of the Carolinas was organized here in 1803, and James Rogers, the church’s minister, was elected the first moderator. In 1852, the church and the cemetery were enclosed by a granite wall. In the Civil War, much of the flooring and the woodwork were removed by Union troops to rebuild a nearby bridge. After the war, the congregation declined, surviving only until 1920. The site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. The present owner is the Catawba Presbytery, ARPC, and an annual commemorative service is held here in October.
