This was the second Negro church founded in Anderson. It was organized at a meeting of approximately 15 persons at the home of the Rev. Henry A. Mikell, who served as the first pastor. A lot was purchased from Bale Clayton for $100 and a small frame church, built of lumber from logs donated by Mrs. Joseph N. (Elizabeth) Whitner, was erected at the site. The original building was replaced by the present brick structure in 1911. The first pastor called after erection of the brick edifice was the Rev. J.R. Rosemond. During the 100 years of its existence Thompson Centennial United Methodist Episcopal Church had been served by 30 pastors. It is named for a white friend who was a generous contributor to the church.
