Founded and built in 1706, this simple Anglican structure is the oldest surviving church in Charleston. Part of the church was constructed from bricks used as ballast on ships arriving in the port, and a number of historic tombs are found in the courtyard. In late March or early April—depending on flowers in bloom and the Easter holiday—the church sponsors its annual Tea Room and Gift Shop fundraiser, with waitresses dressed in period costumes serving such delicacies as magnolia pie. During the fundraiser, an on-site gift shop is open Monday to Saturday 11am to 1:30pm, selling cookbooks, jams, jellies, and crafts made by parish members.
