23 May Episcopal Church of the Epiphany
An 1839 service of worship held at the Court House is the oldest indication of an Episcopal presence in Laurens, SC. Immediately following the Civil War, only three families remained and there were no services. With the construction of the railroad, the church grew in numbers. A Hinners pipe organ from Illinois is still in use today. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places and enjoys the distinction of being the oldest church structure in Laurens County. It is never locked and always open for all who desire a moment of silence and solitude for prayer, meditation, or rest.
