This is inside St. Philip’s Anglican Church. This is an old town and this church is on Church Street, which tells you it’s been around. It  is also the oldest congregation in Charleston.

From the church historic documents; ‘Despite the ravages of war, enemy occupations, fires, earth quakes, pestilence, and famine St. Philip’s has continued to grow to over 1,000 members’.

There have been several buildings, due to all of the above, this one is the latest from 1835. That was before the US Civil War, so this too has had a little maintenance (canon hits 10-13 times) .
