We wandered through the churchyard, reading inscriptions and appreciating the gorgeous tall oaks; there was a service in progress, but after that let out we were welcomed in to view the interior.
I think one of the most interesting views of the architecture is from cemetery in the back of the building.

The cemetery is very old and is the burial site of Charles Pinckney (signer of the constitution and 8th Governor of South Carolina) and Thomas Pinckney (7th Governor of South Carolina).
Enter the church to view the magnificent interior and spend time visiting the graveyard and cemetery to absorb the aura of the area.
