The basics

Originally built as a small wooden structure in 1681, on the site of what is currently St. Michael’s Church, St. Philip’s Church moved to its present location in 1710 and was rebuilt in 1835 after a devastating fire. Several notable persons are buried in its graveyard and cemetery, including John C. Calhoun, former Vice President and Secretary of War, Edward Rutledge, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and Charles Pinckney, signer of the Constitution. St. Philip’s welcomes visitors to attend its worship services and is featured on a number of guided sightseeing tours including walking tours, historical tours, and ghost tours.
