“Some very interesting history.”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

If you love old historical church buildings you will love this sight. This is a beautiful old wood frame structure built in 1884 after the original building of 1820 was destroyed during the Civil War. The building is surrounded by beautiful grounds with ancient huge live oaks and a cemetery dating back to 1803. A must see when visiting St. Simon's Island, GA.

“beautiful sight”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

This beautiful old church is an interesting place to visit especially if you have read about it's history. A stroll through the centuries old oaks and into the well manicured cemetery gives one a sense of peacefulness and tranquility.

“Local history”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

This is a beautiful historic church and local landmark. I'm not really much for visiting cemeteries but the stones in this graveyard tell an amazing local history.

“If you love history”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

This church has a lot of history and is set on beautiful grounds. Does not open till the afternoon so if you want to go inside make sure you go later in the day.
