Church History
Historic St. Peter’s A.M.E. Church-----Walterboro, SC 29488
Founded 1867


    St. Peter’s A.M.E. Church is the oldest Black congregation in Colleton County. The church was established under the leadership of Reverend James Nesbitt in 1867. Presently, St. Peter’s A.M.E. continues to strive under the leadership of Pastor Leon R. Maxwell & First Lady Shaun J. Maxwell.

    The Colleton County Historical and Preservation Society presented St. Peter’s A.M.E. Church with the Walterboro Key Historic Property Award on June 3, 1992. The award was presented for preserving the visual heritage of the neighborhood and leaving the church in its original state with only cosmetic changes. For more than one hundred forty-three years of existence, St. Peter’s ministers have lifted their voices for peace, love, and the teachings of God’s Word.
