There's an interesting story behind the creation of this beautiful little chapel. It's a bit tragic with the pastor who founded the church marrying his first cousin despite his family's wishes. Tragedy followed.

The many, many novels of Eugenia Price can help you plan your trip here. As you walk through the cemetery of Christ Church and Frederica Church, you see the grave sites of many of the people from those novels. It is a must see.
