South Carolina at every turn, it seems, offers something for CarolinaConsidered Project publication. Plenty of interesting people and interesting places to write about here. Some places in South Carolina stand out, though, as especially memorable. The ruins of the Old Sheldon Prince William’s Parish Church and its surrounding grounds is one such memorable place.
Next time your travels take you down I-95, be sure to plan time to turn off at exit 38. Head southeast on the Yemassee Highway (also known as highway 68), toward Beaufort. It’s less than ten miles, and an interesting piece of road to boot! Morning is best, at least for me, but any time of day is fine.
Pull in and park. Then walk across the road to enter the grounds of this remarkable monument. Here’s a short video describing my first visit. On December 24th, 2010.
What a remarkable place. if you listen, you’ll learn a great deal about South Carolina’s history and culture.
