The congregation was established and co-founded in 1681 by English Congregationalists, Scots Presbyterians, and French Huguenots in the spirit of diversity.

We did this as part of walk around the city. It was beautiful architecture and as we read the oldest graveyard in Charleston. We walked around and read headstones and enjoyed the way the church has continued to fix and honor the history.

The church was not open when we visited, but the cemetery featured many interesting, historic graves in such a pretty setting with Spanish moss hanging from the trees.

Beautiful church! And a beautiful cemetery! So many wonderful headstones that are somehow so well preserved. The oldest grave in Charleston is in this cemetery. It's definitely worth a walk through. There is also a beautiful live oak in the back of the lot that...More

We love this church. We chose to get married here. It's history is extraordinary, interwoven with the often painful history of Charleston. It's been a progressive force in the city since 1681! The architecture is stunning; the cemetery is the oldest in the city. The...More
