A must stop. Lots of interesting history here over the years. The pulpit is original and unique plus it's height is not what we see today. The stained glass windows are breathtaking. Great to meditate for few minutes plus one can cool down. Pick up a brochure in the front entry area which explains the numerous historical facts.

This is a gorgeous church. The history, size, architecture and condition leave you awestruck. The bells are the sweetest sound. DO NOT MISS!

Pretty church, some amazing history. We were only able to peek inside because of a wedding that was coming in behind us. It's worth checking out.

A deeply moving service and sermon on the terrible massacre here, but it was then marred by a homophobic official leaflet at the exit that we were told to read, opposing the Supreme Court equality of marriage decision. Deeply hurtful. This is the equivalent of flying the Confederacy flag.

In I'm not mistaken, St. Michaels is the corner of the oldest location in Charleston. Beautiful building. Classic design.
