Old Sheldon Church near Yemasee, SC is a beautiful historic location that is often overlooked. I have had the privilege of officiating at a few weddings at this serene spot.
The church was burnt down in 1779 and again in 1865. This bellicose history is in stark contrast to its serene calm today. Visitors can wander the beautiful grounds and adjoining cemetery. The church is the property of the Episcopal diocese, but anyone may be married there.
The grounds even have an old water pump which STILL works!
Whether it is for a wedding or not, a visit to Old Sheldon Church is certainly worthwhile.
