Lately we have been in several of the historic churches in town. Of course what immediately grabs your attention are the different stained glass windows. While I can’t say for sure how old the windows are it’s a safe assumption not as old as the buildings themselves. In 1861 through 1865 Charleston was under siege and cannon fire from the harbor hit all the buildings. Big glass windows were probably the first thing to go.
Below are three images, from different churches in Charleston. All are on the National Historic Registry.
- St. Michael’s Anglican Church
2. St. Philip’s Church, Charleston
3. Cathedral St. John The Baptist, Charleston
