AFM Real Estate, acting as Agent for the South Carolina Baptist Convention, is pleased to present an outstanding and rare opportunity to purchase The White Oak Conference Center containing +/-218.54 acres in Fairfield County together with extensive improvements (see attached). All buildings, furniture, equipment, and inventory will convey to the purchaser. The Conference Center encompasses a beautiful campus located in the historic White Oak Community of Fairfield County. Less than one hour from Charlotte and Columbia, this offering may be the perfect location for inspiration and fellowship.
One can imagine the ministry, messages, and experiences taken place here over the years, uplifting gatherings and soul-searching inspirations have filled these halls and assemblies. In the mid-70’s, the SC Baptist Convention was called to break ground for the White Oak Conference Center and Camp. The facility has served well and is now ready for the same or possibly a new adventure under new ownership. Come experience this blessed place and “Dream Big.”
What are you looking for? White Oak may be the place of inspiration and renewal. The land and all amenities are alluring and fit for new life as a conference center, corporate headquarters and training center, recreation retreat/camp, charter school, educational campus, RV/ATV park, etc. A grand foundation to enjoy fellowship and share smiling faces in this beautiful part of South Carolina is here.
Conveniently located in the upper Piedmont just off Interstate 77 between Charlotte and Columbia, near the beautiful town of Winnsboro. Fairfield County is known for its “Pines, Ponds, and Pastures,” offering so much picturesque countryside scenery. Commercial passenger airline service is less than one hour away via Charlotte (CLT) and Columbia (CAE), and there is a great local airport nearby for private or charter flights, the Fairfield County Airport (FDW) (5,243 + 100 runway). Rich in history, this area has, and hopefully always will be, a place for people to live well and enjoy abundant blessings.
The Center and property features +/-218.54 acres with trails throughout and around a beautiful lake. Some of the facilities include 3 motel buildings with 140 motel-style rooms, 23 classrooms, a 230-seat lecture hall, ample supporting offices, and a grand auditorium/gymnasium with a capacity of 850 people, all awaiting to house, feed, educate, and entertain. During adjournment and “free time,” take a break enjoying activities such as basketball, ping pong, volleyball, and disc golf for the sports enthusiast. Spend some time together by the fire pit and tell some good old, old stories. Venture out to the lake for fishing, boating, and swimming. Anticipate more challenging goals with the rock-climbing wall and High Ropes Odyssey Course. The stables await your horses for equestrian activities too. A Junior Olympic swimming pool will be the perfect spot to cool off in the summer months. The 400-seat dining hall/cafeteria with premium kitchen provisions included will supply much deserved meals and camaraderie to all the crowd.
Come visit the White Oak Conference Center and let your passion guide you. The facility has been out of service for some time, so there is deferred maintenance and TLC to be performed by the new owners to bring the property back to full, premium condition. White Oak is an exceptional opportunity to again make an impact in our State, Region, Nation, and perhaps the World.
