Fascinating history! So many historical figures have been here…George Washington to Princess Di. Worth stopping by.

I highly recommend you get to this church while in Charleston. The cedar pews were quite beautiful as was the stained glass with St Michael. Take a stroll through the graveyard as well. Free to enter open til 4.

Amazing church and historical site. We sat in the pew that was once occupied by George Washington. Robert E. Lee also visited this church.

Charming church in easy reach when walking from the cruise port. Set back from the port area, the church is a real delight to view. My wife and I were in the area so we took the opportunity to pop in to admire the church.

St Michael's is a Beautiful and Historic Church in the heart of Downtown Charleston.
One of the oldest churches in the South. Beautiful.
Stop in and tour.
Better yet - join for a Sunday Service.
We have found the church to be very Welcoming.

Loved visiting this church! Beautiful windows and holy water font. Wish there had been a handout of the history. Of course, I can look that up.

Interesting interior, unusual pew design, and you can see the pew where George Washington sat. Worth 5-10 minutes of your time, not more than that for me.

St. Michael's is a beautiful 18th-century church and well maintained. It is usually open for visitors outside of services.

I have attended services at the church when I was in town...even sat in the George Washington pew. Christmas services and Easter services were beyond compare.
