Front entry, St. Helena's Church, Beaufort, SC


To continue the previous post about Savannah/Beaufort, I wouild be hard-pressed to leave Beaufort and NOT mention St. Helena’s Episcopal Church. If the homes around Beaufort could tell stories, I’m sure this church could provide books. The Church was established in 1712 as a colonial parish of the Church of England and one of its original parishioners was a signatory to the Declaration of Independence. Rather than me tell its history, click on the link and read the historical signpost.

Historical signpost for St. Helena's

Savannah and Beaufort (frankly, the whole region) is steeped in Revolutionary and Civil War History. A
visit to this area reminds me of all the American history I forgot from high school (Washington DC does that to me big-time!).
