This beautiful church of aged heart pine resembles a ship. Catch the tour! Lovely stained glass windows, interesting construction, spiritually uplifting. It has such history in the church and the graveyard. Old graves and headstones are surrounded by tall live oak trees dripping with spanish moss, azaleas and camelias.

Worth the short drive over to see this church and grounds. Very pretty setting and especially interesting for Methodists to see where our founder conducted sermons!

Looking at the graves is very interesting. Such a beautiful place. It doesn't cost much money and it's fun to ride the trolley there. Amazing place to take family pictures on the front lawn.

The history of this beautiful church is very interesting and the structure itself is fascinating. The guides do a wonderful job explaining both. We could have wandered around the graveyard for hours. There are many names there with an historical connection to the island and GA. Take the time to visit this lovely spot.

I have visited this site several times over the years, and I still enjoy it each time. It is the loveliest of settings: a tiny wooden church set among giant oaks. The inside is beautiful - the church is open most afternoons from 2:00 to 5:00pm. The entire grounds are beautiful and interesting - you can easily spend an hour... More

The story of the building from the Civil War through the visits by four sitting Presidents was very interesting. Some of the pews that were not destroyed by Union forces as they used the church for a stable still remain. The grounds are beautiful, and information on some who are buried in the cemetery was touching. We recommend it as... More
