‘The congregation was co-founded with Charles Towne, 1680–1685, by the English Congregationalists, Scots Presbyterians, and French Huguenots of the original settlement. These “dissenters” erected a Meeting House in the northwest corner of the walled city. The present sanctuary occupies that exact site. The street leading to it was called “Meeting House Street,” later shortened to Meeting Street. Meeting Street is one of the main avenues in Charleston. Wikipedia‘
The sanctuary is rarely open to visitors outside of normal services or special events. I may have been inside twice in the last seven years. The old graveyard does have street access and I wander through the back during most of our ‘wandering days’ in town.
There is a beautiful view of nearby St. Philp’s spire from the church yard. It also gives you an idea of how close most of the old churches are to each other. The original walled city was not big.
