Old St Andrews Parish Church was built in 1706 and is the oldest surviving church building in South Carolina. Old St Andrews Parish Church is also the oldest surviving structure used for worship south of Virginia. It is South Carolina’s only remaining colonial cruciform church.
In 1723 Old St. Andrews Parish Church was expanded into the shape of a cross to accommodate a growing population. It burned in the 1760s but was quickly rebuilt inside its existing walls. The church was one of the few buildings along the Ashley that Union troops did not burn to the ground during the Civil War.
