  • Peaceful spot along the May River in historic Bluffton. A stunning example of Southern Gothic architecture built in 1854 that survived the Civil War. Love that its red-trimmed windows and the Saturday evening service starts at “5.28” pm. Walk the grounds. Find its hidden holy honey up near the pitched roof. Enjoy the river views. Check out the surrounding historic homes. You’ll feel as if you stepped back in time.
  • The old church is nice but I go to enjoy the grounds on the May River. Beautiful scenery. Great place to chill and meditate.
  • This church is located right on the river and boat ramp. Beautiful church and grounds, emacuatly landscaped and other matching buildings on the grounds. If you appreciate old churches this is a must see.
  • Lovely place to visit. So much history and a gorgeous view of the river...and gardens surrounding the church. We have visited several times, but it was locked. This time it was open and there were 2 docents answering questions and talking about the history. This made it SO MUCH more interesting! Didn't see a posted schedule for the docents, but that is the way to see it! Highly recommend. Cameras allowed.
  • Nice historical building. The surrounding area is nice. Take a drive around the neighborhood when you're there
