Blythewood in Richland County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Sandfield Baptist Church / Sandfield Cemetery
Twenty-Five Mile Creek Church, a Primitive Baptist congregation, was organized in this area before 1772. It was renamed Sandfield Church by ca. 1830 and the mother church for Cedar Creek, Harmony, Jackson Creek, and Sawney’s Creek. After some members left in 1840 to organize a new church this congregation became Sandy Level Baptist Church in 1843.
In 1856 Sandy Level Baptist Church built a new church 3 mi. W on Blythewood Rd. The congregation gave this site and the old church to the community provided any organization using it would be Baptist. A second Sandfield Baptist Church, organized here ca. 1870, was disbanded ca. 1938. The cemetery here dates to the second church and is now maintained by Sandy Level Baptist Church.
Erected 2007 by Sandy Level Baptist Church. (Marker Number 40-137.)
