This had been an impossible place to photograph. I have only seen it open for Sunday services. However…
A small sign on the steps warning ‘watch your step’ was the signal. The doors were open, the only two people I saw left almost as we entered.

This is the oldest surviving church in Charleston, built in 1750 – 1760. Old notices and plaques on side walls mark Sunday Services with Pres. George Washington, Southern General Robert E. Lee, and a host of others.
Two wars, fires, hurricanes, and earthquakes have done damage, but it’s still here and full every Sunday.
We only had a short time to visit but I do have a number of photographs to be reviewed and finished. Even if this turns out to be the only image I’m happy having finally been inside with a camera.
