  • Without going inside this is a place of respite for your soul. It is beautiful, historic, and timeless. It is the most photogenic spot in town. We love it so much. It is to be respected and loved.  more »
  • So much history in this area, so much beauty also. Just walking around the church was interesting and the small town of Bluffton is delightful.  more »
  • 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.
