Beautiful church with an interesting history. I learned from our tour guide that St. Michael was destroyed by a natural disaster on St. Michael's Day. I also learned that may historic figures (such as Robert E Lee) visited this church. Definitely worth stopping by on a hot Charleston summer day.

A beautiful church and a must see when in Charleston! It is just a short walk from the City Market and in an area near several other lovely churches as well.

Ended an excellent walking tour here. Air conditioning was a nice break from the heat. Tiffany stained glass is breathtaking! Individually enclosed pews are interesting and full of history.

Beautiful but a lot was roped off. George Washington worshiped here. Even has a graveyard where two Constitution signers are buried.

This was a beautiful church with a rich history of visitors and members. One of the pew boxes belonged to the Governor and George Washington and General Lee were both visitors that sat in that box. The tour is about an hour.

Airconditioned with benches to rest on and enjoy the beauty of the church! The artwork and quaintness of this church is spiritual. Beautiful and worth the visit. It is near several houses for touring. Callhoun Mansion is one of them. Great area to cover Charleston history in one shot!.

You have to go in!! Because we were lucky enough to have chosen Bill's Low Country Tours, we got to stop in and hear his info about this amazing church!! Wish they had a place where you could buy a small self-guided tour info piece in the back of the church. (I have been to other churches where this was... More

Loved seeing the boxed in pews and pulpit in the center of the church. It was beautiful inside and we enjoyed walking through the graveyard next to the church. This is a nice quick visit if you have the time!

To behold St Michael's is to behold Charleston to me. I know I'm in Charleston when I can see the steeple. I loved seeing it in all its grandeur at dusk. The cemetery is a lovely sacred walk and I am so happy some of the gravestones have been restored. I hope it is a memory my daughter will cherish.
