About the St. James Goose Creek Chapel of Ease Historical Site
Preserving, restoring, promoting South Carolina Low Country history.
The site itself has been a trading post, a battleground, a colonial church ground, a site of a new church in the new American country, and now a cemetery surrounded by beautiful forest and native wetland. Visitors can walk where native peoples, white colonists, and the enslaved worked, traded, worshiped, and fought side by side. It is a peaceful rural area with grave-sites still in the process of preservation that date from the end of the Yemasee War.
Proceeds from our gift shop go to fulfilling our mission of preserving and restoring its location in Berkeley County (near Charleston), South Carolina. Its mission is also to share the story of its people and their world, and their importance in the American Story.
