Down The Alley, Old Cemetery

A peaceful hidden gem in the middle of downtown Charleston.  Follow a small sign by an alley and you can find the Unitarian Church graveyard.

The church was started in 1772, construction stopped in 1776 for the revolution, and finally completed in 1787.

It’s amazing to find this in the most busy part of the city, tucked in behind the old buildings. Small and over grown the yard is maintained by the church to be a garden spot in old Charleston.
