Beautiful church with a lot of history. It will definitely be on any walking or carriage tour of Charleston, or stop in on your own walk around the city. It is open during the day.

There are so many churches in Charleston, South Carolina, that their steeples make for a postcard picture when viewing the city from the boat that delivers tourists to and from the historic Fort Sumter National Monument at the mouth of Charleston Harbor. The oldest steeple belongs to St. Michael's. Located at 71 Broad Street, it stands on the site of... More

Being an Episcopalian, I enjoy visiting Anglican churches while on vacation. This is a beautiful historical church that is worth visiting. There is a fenced in graveyard in which a few of the signers of the constitution are interred. Even though it is a historical site, there are still many services per week here!

This was the original church in Charleston although St. Patrick's claims to have the oldest congregation (because they moved house from here to where they are now). This one is sooo... More
