Hatoff Church & Mt. McCrae Cemetery, Laurens County

I haven’t been able to locate any history of this congregation, but it was traditionally known as Hatoff Church, as the road sign confirms.

It’s possible that a later congregation used the facility, as the adjacent cemetery is known as Mt. McCrae.

There are several interesting headstones in the cemetery, including these traditional wooden markers.

Such markers are found in African-American and white burying grounds alike.

Reverend R. W. Wiggins (?-1952)

Baptismal, erected in 1956.
