In Harnett County lies a small, famous, old church called Barbecue, founded in 1757. This Presbyterian church was the pastorate of Reverend Campbell for a time until the Revolutionary War turned this Whig against his Tory congregation. Angus McDairmid next occupied the pulpit until 1802 when he tried to prevent Barbecue from being swept up in the frenzy of the Presbyterian revival; his efforts failed. Many others followed, even a Methodist preacher, and among worshipers at Barbecue were Flora McDonald and Alexander McRae.
