Open all day for people to wander in. Stunning stained glass windows. The building dates from the late 1600s. Definitely worth a stop on your walking tour.

Was able to go in around lunch time as they were finishing up a mid day prayer service. Such wonderful history. The cemetery is also a must see.

Gorgeous historic church. Apparently George Washington worshiped here when he visited the city. Very well preserved.

Upon walking into this church I certainly knew that this had been a place of prayer for many years. It has an amazing feeling. This history of the church is very interesting and when built was on the northern most part of Charleston.

Like many of the Charleston places of worship, St. Michael's is very accessible. We enjoyed our very brief visit here including the cemetery. Well worth a visit as you explore the many places in Charleston to learn about the city's history and heritage.
