“Spend all the time you want”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

My hubby and I like visiting old cemeteries and the one that surrounds this church was VERY old. There is a lot of history to learn about St. Helena's and a docent on hand to explain it.

“Perfect for History Buffs...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Beautiful old church - established 1712 - churchyard is the resting place for Revolutionary War soldiers (both Patriots and British), Confederate soldiers, and members of old Beaufort families. Docents on duty most days to show off the inside and share the history of this beloved place.

“Filled with History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This was our second visit here and this time it was with the help of a docent. He did an outstanding job of telling about the history of the church, the altar and then did a walking tour of the cemetery. That was fascinating from the Revolutionary War soldiers, to the doctor who was buried with water and a loaf of bread in case he was not dead. This is a must see to find out about local history.

“so much history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

I had an evening stroll through the grounds, alone to check out the graveyard, what was I thinking! The trees dripping with spanish moss, no neighbors in sight and the church organ going- it was very interesting but got a little creepy. Don't miss it- read the headstones, it's worth the stop.
