McBee Chapel

P.O Box 402
Conestee, SC 29636
(864) 233-4103

 The little structure is a fine example of octagonal architecture in vogue in the United States from the 1840s-1860s, its prime advantage being that it encloses one-fifth more floor area than a square with the same total length of wall.

The church was named for Vardry McBee, the “Father of Greenville” who provided funds for the little church. Listed in the National Register March 23, 1972.

 1 mile south of SC Hwy. 291 on US 25, turn east on Fork Shoals Road in the town of Conestee.
