Long Description:
Text of Marker:

"On December 22, 1801, one acre on the north side of Bear Swamp was deeded for the use of the Baptist Society. Local tradition says that the meeting house that stood on this tract was built in the 1780s and was used as a campsite by travelers between Fayetteville and Georgetown. In 1831, the Baptist Society was constituted as Bear Swamp church.

Erected by Bear Swamp Baptist Church and the Friday Afternoon Book Club of Lake View, S. C.-1970"
