Old Sheldon Church Ruins
Posted By: Ed n Georgia, 11-28-2017, 10:18 AM

The Old Sheldon Church Ruins. This was a pre revolutionary war church in Yemassee, SC It was destroyed in 1779 and rebuilt in the years after. In 1865, Sherman's troops destroyed it and was never rebuilt. Much of the wood and some of the brick structure were cannibalized by the locals. It is now a protected Historical site.

The brickwork amidst the trees is a very striking pattern.
