  • Cool historic church and cemetary. Worth seeing.
  • Circular Congregational is one of the oldest churches in Charleston. It has the oldest graveyard in Charleston, dating from 1681. The grounds are the site of the first "Meeting House" in Charleston. The only "churches" back then were Church of England and nothing else could be called a church. So other denominations and groups had to have meeting houses. Circular was the first such meeting house for a dissenting group and is where Meeting Street gets its name! The current building dates from the 1890s, as does the pipe organ in the church. The original Robert Mills church dated from the 1830s and burned in the great fire that hit Charleston in the 1860s.
  • Beautiful location, though I've not been inside, we enjoyed walking the grounds.
  • If you are a "love" with the Spanish Moss :-) visit the cemetery which is located behind.
