This is one of those must-sees on Saint Simons, a gorgeous church with hand constructed wood beautifully aged and stained glass windows, one of which is Tiffany. The staff was very helpful and the surrounding ceremony contains historic graves, including that of author Eugenia Price.

Church is not open in the mornings so if you’d like to enter check before you go if it’s open. Simply beautiful.

The church has one stained glass window made and installed by Tiffany. All of them feature rich, dense colors and intricate designs. Presidents have worshiped here. The cemetery is also impressive.

This is one of my favorite spots on St. Simon's and the whole east coast. The building is over 140 years and was built by hand without nails. The craftsmanship is incredible. They open up the building through the week in the afternoons. It's well...More
