Nature has taken over throughout which is the Unitarian way. I took a few really great pictures showing the age of the headstones with the moss hanging from nearby trees.

Amazing edifice. The Sankofa memorial in the churchyard is a must see on your Charleston visit. The congregation saved about 100 handmade bricks from the 1774 tower and built a memorial to the unknown enslaved workers who made them. Unique. Significant. Touching.

Got a chance to explore the church and graveyard. Very beautiful and peaceful. Pathways were well kept while maintaining the overgrown aspect of the graveyard.

It was on our way - the gardens, cemetery and church are beautiful. The history is interesting and oozes with loving care for congregation and facility. A docent is on site to share the story and beautiful architecture .... worth the stop in.
