Pickens was also active in the church, leading to his men calling him "the Fighting Elder." The Old Stone Church, seen above, was built in 1802, with Pickens as one of the founding members. It is located just a few short miles south of Clemson. The guide at the Calhoun House also said that Clemson now also owns Picken's Hopewell Plantation, and is planning to restore it as well for the public. So if you need a nice historic charity to give to...
Andrew Pickens is buried next to his wife Rebecca in the Old Stone Church Cemetery.
The cemetery has some other interesting people in it, but there was a funeral happening and we (she) didn't want to be rude. Pickens was the one I was most interested in anyway.
