Beautiful historic church. Pew 43 was used by George Washington and Robert E Lee in its historical past. The stained glass and inside are stunning. Definitely worth a stop!

Great stop. Stopped in on a walking tour and enjoyed the history of the pews, iron on the altar, etc. The Cemetery was interesting to walk through.

Open all day for people to wander in. Stunning stained glass windows. The building dates from the late 1600s. Definitely worth a stop on your walking tour.

Upon walking into this church I certainly knew that this had been a place of prayer for many years. It has an amazing feeling. This history of the church is very interesting and when built was on the northern most part of Charleston.
