This Methodist congregation was founded in 1842 when the community of Pinewood was still part of Clarendon County. In fact, when the town received its charter in 1888, it was officially named Clarendon. It did not become Pinewood until 1902, and the town was annexed into Sumter County in 1920.
A Pinewood Depot was built in the center of the town in 1889, bringing more commerce and people to the village. The advent of the railroad galvanized the building of churches in the town’s central location. Pinewood United Methodist Church erected its present sanctuary, seen here, near the depot in 1900. The church continues to serve the community of Pinewood.
