We did the historical walking tour & this was one of two churches that were open. AMAZING architecture for that time in history.

Lovely church. We were unfortunately unable to go inside because they were closed, however we walked all around the outside and in the historical graveyard as part of the Gateway Walk. It’s definitely worth seeing as it’s unique architecture and history are fascinating.

The Circular Congregational Church and its burial ground is an interesting and picturesque stop along the downtown Charleston horse carriage tours. Our guide mentioned that several early non-Church of England congregations shared the church building and worshiped together.

Didn’t go inside the church but now that I see the pictures, I would’ve loved to do so. South Carolina has some beautiful cemeteries, the one here included. Loved seeing he pieces of history!

Great place for a photo op in downtown Charleston, SC. We didn't get a chance to go inside, just a drive by.

This church can't be toured, but is right on Meeting Street. A walk around it through its gothic-scenic churchyard is a nice detour. We were lucky to attend a Sunday afternoon jazz concert in the church, performed by the talented, innovative John Colianni Trio. Hearing...More
