St. Michael's Episcopal Church

St. Michael's Episcopal Church Review

Topped by a 186-foot steeple, Charleston's most famous, this is the city's oldest surviving church. The first cornerstone was set in place in 1752 and, through the years, other elements were added: the steeple clock and bells (1764); the organ (1768); the font (1771); and the altar (1892). The pulpit—original to the church—was designed to maximize natural acoustics. Washington worshipped here in 1791.
