Cleland Crossroads in Hampton County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Hickory Grove Baptist Church and Cemetery
This church, founded by 1869 with Rev. G.D. Kinard as its first pastor and 22 charter members, was admitted to the Barnwell Association that year. The congregation first met in a brush arbor, then built a log church near this site. That building also housed the Hickory Grove School for many years.
Hickory Grove became a member of the Savannah River Association in 1904 and helped form the Allendale-Hampton Association in 1958. The present frame church, built in 1885, was moved across the road in 1953, with renovations completed in 1954. The cemetery nearby includes the plots of many early church families.
Erected 2005 by The Congregation. (Marker Number 25-11.)
