Charleston Churches

Charleston is known as the “Holy City,” and it’s not for nothing…there are steeples everywhere you turn! Some of the churches are, as you might imagine, located on Church Street, although there are plenty more spread throughout the city.



French Huguenot Church

Some of my favorites included the pink French Huguenot church (one of only two left in the country), the unbelievably tall St. Philip’s, and the famous St. Michael’s. The history of these buildings is as astounding as their architecture is beautiful!

The church yards are also something to see, especially when you realize the figures from American history that are buried there!

We did also drive past the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, which was the site of June’s tragic shooting, and saw the memorial there…it seemed too sacred to photograph, though, so that is a memory that I will carry in my mind only.
