Stoney Creek Presbyterian Church, Hampton County, South Carolina
Stoney Creek Presbyterian Church, Hampton County, South Carolina

The official name of this church is Stoney Creek Presbyterian Chapel of Prince William Parish.  It has a long history to go with the name.  It was organized in 1743, and the Greek Revival chapel was built in 1833.  Union troops used the chapel as a hospital which may explain why it survived the war.  The Congregation lasted until 1967 and the church is now maintained by a Presbyterian church in Beaufort, South Carolina.  In the 1990s, the church appeared in a scene from the movie Forrest Gump where Tom Hanks prayed they would find some shrimp. In 2002 it was also added to the National Register of Historic Places.
