Kingston Presbyterian Church is a historic Presbyterian church located at Conway in Horry County, South Carolina.[3][4] The sanctuary was built in 1858 and is an outstanding example of antebellum Greek Revival ecclesiastical design. The three-bay façade features a portico set on square columns with recessed panels and square pilasters. It was originally sheathed with weatherboard, but was covered in stucco in 1930 when a stuccoed brick addition was added to the rear. Also on the property is a Colonial Revival style brick educational building built in 1956. It is co-located with the Kingston Presbyterian Church Cemetery, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[4]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[2]
