In the South Carolina Lowcountry this is a well known ruin. Considering it’s on a dirt road easement it’s surprising people ever visit here at all.

At first this was a ‘Chapel Of Ease’ not a church. Nice way of saying there’s a plantation down the road, and nothing else so you don’t get a church. Kind of rude considering in 1706 there wasn’t anything… anywhere.

It’s also known as the ‘burnt church’.  The second time they gave up.

I plan on another group of photographs but I want to learn a little more about it first.
