With the history of two signers of Declaration, original Tiffany stained glass Windows this beautiful church is a must see. Sit in the pew where George Washington sat and sense the blessing our country's history provided.

On the corner of Broad and Meeting, you will find St. Michael’s church. It is the oldest surviving church in the City of Charleston. This is not the first church to be built on this corner. I was surprised to learn that they do not know who the architect of this church was. The look is similar to St Martin-in-the-Fields... More

Beautiful Episcopal Church with lots of history. Tiffany Glass Window. All the seating is in Boxed Cubicles. Those who could afford to pay the most received the best location, usually in the front of the church! Continuous bombardment for 700+ days during the Civil War severely damaged the alter of the church which required major restoration. Two members of the... More

We were exploring Charleston and wanted to see St. Michael's. So glad we did as one can walk through the graveyard and take in the history and beauty. Then, head into the cathedral to see the Tiffany's stain glass (circa 1905-I believe?) Have to see this church during your visit to Charleston!

We walked into a lot of the Churches around Charleston, and this was our favourite. There was a gentleman who was greeting guests on the inside. He seemed like he genuinely cared, and the interaction we had with him was heartwarming. The interior of the church is beautiful. Be sure to stroll through the church's grounds and the grave yard....

This beautiful church is worth a visit. The graveyard is also captivating and includes historic signage regarding famous citizens resting there.

An historical gem and an active church in Charleston. Grab a fact sheet in the welcome center before entering to read and learn about the church. Graveyard adjacent to the church-recommend a stroll through after.

Viewed this Church on a free walking tour and it was magnificent! A great enduring structure of the 1700's
