About the St. James Goose Creek Chapel of Ease Historical Site
Preserving, restoring, promoting South Carolina Low Country history.

In our research and preservation of historical documents, we have come across many beautiful patterns and illustrations of early America that we have used as inspiration for various products, such as patterns for scarfs, ties, tea towels, and more. These are our exclusive products, designed in Berkeley County, SC. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit SC corporation. 100 percent of proceeds go to preservation and restoration of the Chapel of Ease, and other historic sites and projects.

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.
