St. Peter's Catholic Church, Columbia

St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church is located at 1529 Assembly St. in Columbia. This is the second building of the oldest Catholic parish in Columbia and the Midlands of South Carolina. The first resident Catholic priest came to Columbia in 1820. St. Peter's first church, designed by the South Carolina architect Robert Mills, was completed in 1824. This church was demolished in the early 1900s to build the new sanctuary.

The new church was designed by Frank Pierce Milburn, a Southern architect. Construction started in 1906 and was completed in 1908. The Gothic Revival church was built with dark red brick with Bedford limestone and dull glazed terra cotta trim. The roof was Buckingham Slate. The spire is topped with a cross and is 163 ft above grade. The church has a cruciform plan with a high nave. It is 131 ft long and 79 ft wide. The nave is 64 ft long and 51 ft tall. The 3,500 lb, 55 inches diameter bell was cast in 1911 by McShane Bell Foundry in Baltimore, Maryland.
