St. Philip's Episcopal Church is an historic Episcopal church in the High Hills of Santee antebellum summer resort community of Bradford Springs in Lee County, South Carolina.[2][3] Built in 1840 in what was then part of Sumter County, it is an early example of the Carpenter Gothic style of architecture. It is located about six miles north of Dalzell. On April 17, 1996, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.[1]

History[edit]

St. Philip's Episcopal Church, built in 1840, is an early example of the Carpenter Gothic style of architecture. It is unusual among such churches in featuring a pointed arch window in its front gable rather than the customary circular rose window.[2]

Cemetery[edit]

St. Philip's Cemetery is included in the historic place designation. Buried there is the Rev. Charles Pinckney Elliott, the first rector of the church.[2]

Current use[edit]

St. Philip's Episcopal Church is no longer an active parish in the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina, but is maintained by local descendants of the original members with assistance from the diocese.[2][4]
