    The church was not open when we visited, but the cemetery featured many interesting, historic graves in such a pretty setting with Spanish moss hanging from the trees.  more »

    Sounds of Charleston is so fun! The church hosts a fun history of Charleston through song musical - great performers and a lively director make for a fun evening.

    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.
