Little Pee Dee Presbyterian Church. “Until this church was founded, Presbyterians in the upper Marion District (Dillon County) who worshipped in a house of their faith were forced to make the long journey to Ashpole Church, near Rowland, North Carolina. For years the services there were conducted in Gaelic, then with a mixture of that tongue and English until the Civil War, when Gaelic was discontinued.” (Submitted on May 1, 2009.)
