This historic Belton congregation was founded in 1833 in neighboring Anderson. (The City of Anderson was chartered that same year, but Belton was not founded until 1855, when it becames a railroad town.) Shady Grove Baptist Church is affiliated with the Saluda Baptist Association. Members interred in the adjacent churchyard include veterans of both the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.
