City Directories and History: R&R has divided the 1939 SCDOT map of Edgefield County into (20) sectional maps. Many of the individually listed schools and churches shown on this section are pictured. However, in many cases, the individual site also has its own post on R&R, which often provides added information and image. Be wise and use the search function to locate all of the entries for this and other homeplace listings.

Pleasant Lane, located about seven miles north of Edgefield off U.S. 25, received its name from a Baptist church. The Pleasant Lane Baptist Church was organized in 1837. After the Civil War the church membership became entirely Black and was renamed Pleasant Grove. About three miles north of the church is still located the Pleasant Lane section of Edgefield County. Early settlers were the Blockers, Lakes, and Strothers.
