Since Charleston, South Carolina was one of the earliest US settlements there is a large number of churches. So many in fact it is called the ‘Holy City’.
One reason for so many churches is the number of different religious denominations that came here. Similar to New Orleans a large number of French migrated here, living in the large French Quarter.
Most of these Churches have grave yards right in the town center streets or nearby alleys. These are the oldest in our area and are usually open and available for a quiet walk any time.
