Beautiful historic church

This church has some interesting history and is probably the most photographed site in Bluffton. Definitely worth a visit

Tis a grand day. We have been visiting the Church if the Cross for nearly 50 years, and today there is a volunteer docent to lead the group in a history lesson. We are always indebted to local volunteer historians.

Enjoyed a visit here with our entire family including two seniors and two middle aged children. Everyone had a wonderful time viewing the beautiful setting and the gorgeous inside of the church. The docents on site were amazing and we could have talked all day. Worth a visit while in bluffton.

The Church of the Cross is a beautiful church with an amazing location. The grounds are perfect for some great pictures. You can get some Holy Honey here as well! They have a bee hive in the building and collect the honey to sell.

This church is different in architecture than most church - it is rather new-gothic, the grounds around the church are also beautiful

It is ild and beautiful and you feel like you are in the presence of God. Spend some time inside, especially a sunny day when the windows shimmer and reflect on your life. Very moving.

An interesting old church that is one of the few Civil War survivors in Bluffton, SC. Docent provided interesting details about the history of the physical aspects of the church as well as current use / membership.

An amazing piece of architecture,the buildings on the grounds are beautiful. It is definitely worth a trip even if you don't go inside. However the inside is definitely something to see,

If you go to Old Town Bluffton, make sure you stroll to the end of Calhoun Street and see this beautiful antique church. You can walk on the grounds and see the stunning views of the May River, and sometimes the church is open with a docent available to give you information on the historic church.

I've visited the Church of the Cross many times, and always love the beautiful setting on a small bluff overlooking the May River. There are volunteers inside to tell you about the church itself, and the grounds make for a lovely walk.
