The Pompion Hill Chapel was built in 1763, as a replacement to the 1706 chapel constructed in the area. It is one of South Carolina?s numerous small churches, but it is considered to be the finest and best preserved of the lot.

The Pompion Hill Chapel is a Georgian style, one-story building made with brick. The main material was from Zachariah Villepontoux, a well known brick maker and owner of the Paranassus Plantation located at the Black River. William Axson served as the master mason. The construction was mainly patterned after the Charleston St. Michael?s Church.

The Pompion Hill Chapel is mostly original and unaltered. This integrity helped the site become declared as a National Historic Landmark in April 1970.
