Additional Details:
On the Ashley River Road is this old Episcopal Church; construction begun in 1706, enlarged as a cruciform in 1723, it is the oldest example of Episcopal architecture in South Carolina. The Church formerly served as a financial yardstick for its parishioners the front pews renting higher than the rear ones. St. Andrews was once the wealthiest parish in the Colonies.
