Christ Episcopal Church

10 N. Church St.
Greenville, 29601

The congregation was founded in 1820 by summer residents from Charleston. In 1825, Vardry McBee, who was an early industrialist in Greenville, gave 4 acres (1.6 ha) for the church. The cornerstone was laid on September 15, 1825.

The churchyard has a cemetery. In addition to Vardry McBee, clergy, church members, former mayors, three politicians are interred: the post Civil Warprovisional Governor Benjamin Franklin Perry, his son, US Congressman William H. Perry, and US Senator Joseph H. Earle.
