No, the White Meeting House of Orangeburg County and that of Dorchester
are quite different. The one in Dorchester, as I recall, was founded by
immigrant Congregationalists who later moved on to Georgia. The White
House Methodist Church is about 9 miles from the town of Orangeburg, and
was founded in 1790, 3 years after the Edisto circuit was established in
the area. It was while visiting the Edisto circuit that Bishop Francis
Asbury remarked that he feared the people were more in love with Christ's
messengers than with Christ.
