The Unitarian Church of Charleston Turns 200 Years Old

Read More

By Mark A. Leon

Though the physical building was constructed in circa 1780 – 1782 as an expansion of the Circular Congregational Church, it wasn’t until 1817 that Anthony Forster and several other church members became Unitarians.? 75 members, more than half of the congregation, left the Meeting Street Church and founded the Second Independent Church in Charleston on Archdale.? Now, 200 years later, the Unitarian Church located at 4 Archdale Street continues to be a thriving community with no signs of slowing down.

Complete church history summary

With its rich history, including the alleged final resting place of Annabel Lee, the true love of Edgar Allan Poe,? the Unitarian Church continues to be a locals and tourist favorite.? Whether on foot or horse drawn carriage, this quiet community based church celebrates acceptance, life and open arms for all.? By offering spiritual freedom, a space for events, weddings and celebrations, the church and all its members have been an inspiration to the community of Charleston.

In 2017, we celebrate 200 years of the Unitarian Church in Charleston.

Walk with us through as we take you through the glorious architecture, historic resting places and beautiful grounds.

Not only was the weather perfect for the Charleston Beer Garden on May 20th and there were so many great vendors, games and fun, but a tremendous amount was raised for the Lowcountry AIDS Services. This was a remarkable event and from all the smiles and laughs, we can see that so many had an incredible time.

We want to share some great photographic memories of this event from those that lived it.

Enjoy this gallery of happiness from the Charleston Beer Garden event this past weekend. Cheers.
