Interesting Fact:

St. Philips Church originally stood here, but when the parish grew too large, the church split. St. Philips rebuilt on Church Street and St. Michael’s became the oldest church building downtown Charleston. The steeple was painted black during the Revolutionary War to avoid attack.
