Early attempts to establish
a Presbyterian church in
Beaufort, in the 1740s and
1880s, were unsuccessful.
???The first permanent
congregation was founded in
1912 by 16 charter members.
In 1921, when it acquired
this lot, Rev. A.P. Toomer
put up a sign with the
Old Testament verse "the
people had a mind to work."
???This Colonial Revival
church, built in 1928-29,
was designed by architect
James H. Sams (1872-1935).

( Reverse text)

???Notable architectural
features include simple
clapboard siding and clear
arched windows. Members
completed the interior,
with Rev. F.B. Mayes
(minister 1925-1949) as
chief carpenter and Elder
J.W. Logan in charge. The
1947-48 chancel arches
were built by the craftsmen
who built the U.S. Naval
Hospital. In 1988 First
Presbyterian gave funds and
members to help found Sea
Island Presbyterian Church.
