Quick Fact Friday 2019-11-29
Posted on Nov 29th, 2019

Currently on display at the Charleston Museum are the Church's silver chalice (1680), paten (1763), flagon, and other communion vessels. They were all hidden and preserved during the years of war and occupation. The brick Vestry House, built in 1751 was restored in 1939 and again refurbished after Hurricane Hugo in 1989. Also on the 26-acre property dating back to the mid 1700's is the Cemetery. A Confederate earthwork zigzags across the property as well and was constructed in 1862 by field hands from neighboring plantations. It was part of the picket line that guarded Charleston from Boone Hall to the coastal marshes. A new sanctuary was constructed and dedicated in early 1996 as well as other buildings to meet the needs of its growing congregation. The picture on the left is taken of present-day Christ Church and the picture on the right was taken May 4, 1971.
