St. Philip’s Church
Charleston’s nickname is the Holy City, and St. Philip’s Church is at its epicenter. The Anglican parish’s sand-colored steeple is prominent in the city’s skyline, emerging from the French Quarter with dignity and determination that dates back to 1680, when the parish was formed. For centuries, it has persevered through hurricanes, fires, a major earthquake and shelling by the Union Army during the Civil War (the current building was constructed after a fire in 1835). The church yard at St. Philip’s is a popular stop on historical and ghost tours due to the dignitaries buried there, including John C. Calhoun, a U.S. vice president. The public is welcomed at weekly services on Sunday and Wednesday mornings, and the offices and sanctuary are open to visitors during weekday business hours.
