Built around 1740, burned in a forest fire in 1886. So not much to see. Easy to get to, you can even view the church from the comfort of your car which is a good idea as there were mosquitos everywhere.
Good reminder of history and culture of the low country. Take your time and read the markers. Tour at your own pace. Warning: bring and use the bug spray.
This is a really cool place to check out and see how they made this place. The walls are covered in seashells and lime, which we where told was called tabby. Its cool to see ruins that date back to the 1740s. Overall, if you love old architecture, its worth checking out.
We had a great visit. We were visiting Port Royal for a five day retreat. The Island is only a half an hour drive from Port Royal. Built around 1740 AD the ruins still stand strong and offers a rich history of the Island.
We were taking the back roads to Beaufort, SC and just had to stop. If you are visiting Old Sheldon Church ruins this is just down the road and worth a quick stop.
Read about this in a brochure at the house we were staying in & also by recommendation of our waiter. It's beautiful and easy to find. Worth a trip to spend a little time on a beautiful sunny day.
