Sheldon Church Ruins

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 2 May 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

The ruins are all that remain of what was known as the Prince William Parish Church. Located in Beaufort Country, S.C., it is better known today as The Old Sheldon Church. It was built between 1745 and 1753 on land bordering Sheldon Plantation. It was one of the first buildings built in the Greek Revival Style in the Western Hemisphere. The church was burned by the British in 1779 during the Revolutionary War and rebuilt in 1826. It was burned again in 1865, when Union General William Tecumseh Sherman ordered it torched as part of his “March to the Sea” campaign during the Civil War, and was never repaired.
I will be gone all day today so I may not be able to leave comments. Will be back tomorrow!
