Gorgeous church on the inside especially the Tiffany windows. It has a very colorful history as well during the wars. Also cool to know that George Washington and other dignitaries sat in the pews.
This is a beautiful church. It is a very old church with a cemetery along side. Two signers of the declaration of Independence are buried there. I also read that George Washington had a pew here. The pews are numbered with doors to let you in.
The bells of St Micheals chime over the Holy City and we know all is well. Seated at the four corners of the law, St. Michaels is one the icons of down town Charleston. It is a must see. The architecture and history is amazing. I will not try to give a history lesson but will leave that up to... 更多
Beautiful church, the booths for service along with the alart and wood work in this church is beautiful, Make sure to include the cemetary as part of your tour of this church!
PROS; beautiful church along Broad Ave; close to the Exchange and Provost; interesting cemetery outside the church- contains the grave of 2 signers of the Declaration of Independence- Rutledge and Pickney; beautiful enclosed pews inside – George Washington sat on #43. CONS: none.
We just happened to be walking by as the service was about to start, and we were invited in. The preaching was passionate, and the congregation was responsive and enthusiastic. We had a fine worship experience. It was also encouraging to see what the church was doing to draw in youth and young adults
Where else can you find the graves/headstones dating back to the 1700s, including those of 2 of the signers of the Constitution? And the flowers that adorn this historic site are gorgeous and lush! Take a little trip through history.
This church, with its numbered and reserved booths, gives an indication of what worship must have been like in an era when society was much more hierarchical and with less of a middle class. One can't help but be charmed by the creaky wooden floors and classic organ pipes perched above the nave.
We were able to tour this beautiful church. It appears to be a very vibrant church with a large congregaion. We would love to attend a service there.
Free and open to the public. Oldest church building in Charleston. First stop on our walking tour, beautiful tiffany windows, woodwork, and organ. George Washington attended services here. Beautiful original chandelier dating from the early 1800's.
Beautiful Tiffany stained glass windows. The colors were the most vibrant colors I've ever seen in a church anywhere. Truly something to see in the holy city
