Beautiful graveyard

Cool and spooky walk through a beautiful old graveyard. An easy detour off the sidewalks into a quiet spot.

This old graveyard walk is short but peaceful and quiet in the middle of the day! Fascinating old grave stones and overgrown shrubbery.

We enjoyed the beautiful flora and fauna, the interesting and varied trees and plants, well arranged and cared for. Reading the tombstones brought some history to mind, and some sadness over people's early deaths or family losses.

Great "photo op" at the end of this walkway to an old graveyard. A MUST quick-visit if you're walking up King Street and if have a penchant for old graveyards. It's easy to miss this entrance though (across from the library).

This is a hidden path through downtown Charleston. It starts on Archdale Street through the cemetery of the Uniterian Church. There is a map online showing the exact path which winds through several cemeteries. The back side of the cemetery comes out on King Street and the path crosses to the left side of the Library Society building. There are... More

Nice stroll through the graveyard. Lots and lots of very old tombstones. Some pretty flowers. Not Very big though. Beware of local homeless people. We had one follow us in and followed us around finally stopped us asking for money. It's very secluded so you can't see inside don't I mean don't go alone. Kinda dangerous

It is just a small cemetery and it is an ok walk but you really only see a few graves.The cemetery was grown up alot but just to kill some time it was a nice place to stop before you go back onto the highway.

Amazing to see these beautiful gardens, churches and cemeteries. Meanders about 3 blocks of gorgeous homes, pathways of the past and even a couple museums along the way if you need to get out of the heat! The one gate at St. Phillips cemetery is usually locked (John C Calhoun is here) and you'll have to walk around on Cumberland... More

A little hard to locate but worth the hunt! We escaped the Old Market as quickly as possible to say we did it and then walked to this much quieter spot. Interesting tombstones about, spanning centuries. There are lovely gardens throughout, some manicured, some, not so much, but if history, peace, quiet, reflection and natural beauty are your thing, forgo... More

This is a private little walk at 161 3/4 King St.through a churchyard. The churchyard is in the style of a wild 19th century English garden. It's really special and you shouldn't miss it. There are number of trees on the walk and I spied a young man on a low-lying branch reading a book. Perhaps he was reading about... More
