Did you know that churches were built in a circular shape because the early architects thought the devil lived in the corners? Its a beautiful church with a very old, spooky graveyard.

Visiting the cemetery at Circular Church is worth a visit. The oldest grave stone I have found is 1747 although I am sure there are older grave sites. Easy to find and worth a visit.

Shared the evening concert here. What a way to learn about the area from some great music and songs. The Voices of the presenters in this venue was spectacular. A very good concert.

Graveyard holds oldest known grave in city. So many markers to read and learn from. Very well maintained. Bit of info from guide, extreme heavy rains forced some bones up to surface recently and archeologists needed to match and rebuy them.

We walked through the cemetery to see some of the old headstones and there were some really old ones in there. It's a neat place to visit.

Nestled off the street but in plain view, you can miss it just hurrying to your destination. I love old churches and cemeteries and this was a good find. It’s not huge but there is some history. It’s very easy to walk through.

Stroll through the old graveyard at this church and read the inscriptions on graves dating back to colonial days. See graves of entire families whose members died within days of each other (smallpox?) This can be a peaceful and contemplative break from the hectic sightseeing...More

The Circular Church as our last stop on a ghost tour. It was very dark making the grave yard very creepy. We were encouraged to take photos and I must admit, I did pick up some odd distortions on my pictures.
