Charleston Unitarian Church Graveyard

On our ghost tour the night before we were told the story of Ann Ravenel at the Unitarian Graveyard entrance on King Street.  Before we walked on to our next ghost stop my Daughter was talking about visiting here in the daylight.  After our time at the Slave Museum we walked the few blocks over to the small brick wall and gate area between two shops and across from the library on King Street.

There is a small brick path way that leader further back towards the Unitarian Church. There were a couple of benches and it was almost like an over grown park.  Such an interesting place! Towards Archdale Street the graveyard widens and has more pathways through the tangles.

Its strangely beautiful and peaceful in here.  You forget you are in a bustling tourist town.

There is also the St. John’s Lutheran Church graveyard next door.

The graveyard has limited hours, I think on our visit the gate was open from 10-3. The below quote was on the entrance gate on King Street.
