Bufords Bridge, Bamberg County, South Carolina



 


Notes: "BUFORD'S BRIDGE (Historic Community) 
 
Probably the oldest community of Bamberg County, the community got its name from Major William Buford's bridge over the Salkehatchie River. 
The early settlers in and around the village were the Kirklands, Brabhams, McMillans, Kearses, Moyes, Dickinsons, Barkers, Hays, Ayers, Bests, Brelands, Ritters, Priesters, Grimes, Harleys, Wilsons, Knights, Rushes, And Rileys, according to the first U.S. Census of 1790.
The first church was Philadelphia Meeting House, built by the Methodists and Baptists to be shared.  In 1832 
the Methodists built their own church on land given by Robert C. Kirkland, the first Mitzpah Methodist Church.  In 1856 a new building was erected, two miles west of the original location.
By 1880 the community numbered 1,567 persons.  The village was incorporated in 1895.  Today, only the Mizpah church remains of the original business center of the community."
