Additional comments.
1. Carmel Presbyterian Church
The congregation for this Presbyterian Church was originally formed in the mid 1700′s. Carmel is the oldest Presbyterian Church in the old Pendleton District. The first church was built of logs. The present sanctuary was completed in 1856 and is made of handmade bricks and has a slave gallery with its own outside entrance. In the early years of the church, Ezekiel Pilgrim, who donated the land for the church, prohibited a cemetery from being placed

on the same grounds as the church. The early Carmel church members were then buried at the old church site, which is known as the Pickens Cemetery. After Ezekiel Pilgrimís death, a cemetery was started at the church. The earliest marker in that cemetery is 1841. (http://www.tourpickenscounty.net/cultural-heritage-tour/churches/.)
