The Unitarian Church in Charleston is easily accessible and well worth even a short visit. The cemetery is especially interesting. Don't miss this church during your visit of the many Charleston historical locations.

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.
