Bear Swamp Baptist Church

Bear Swamp Baptist Church is located near the town of Lake View, South Carolina.  It is historically known as The Meeting House.  On December 22, 1801 one acre of land on the north side of Bear Swamp was deeded for the use of the Baptist Society.  Local tradition says that the meeting house which stood on the tract was built in the 1780's and was used as a camp site for travelers between Fayetteville, North Carolina and Georgetown, South Carolina.  In 1831 the Baptist Society was constituted as Bear Swamp Church.
