“Worthy of Notice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Remarkable church, I get goose bumps everytime we visit this place. The tour guide did an incredible job of sharing detailed information about the history of the church and the architectural inspiration and design.
We arrived after noon, so the grounds were closed for touring and they were nice enough to let us into the church during closing hours. We will make a note next time to get there before hand so my children can tour the grounds...beautiful live oak trees, a playground and gift shop, and a historic cemetary.

“So Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Love to visit old cemetaries and this one does not disappoint and the stories about some of the departed are so amazing. The church is so pretty and the stained glass windows, words can describe the beauty & workmanship of them. What a great place & what a great congregation that keeps this church together.

We researched our family in the cemetery. A very beautiful place. If you're in St. Simons, not to be missed.
