This church near Beaufort, SC, was originally built between 1745 and 1755 and partially burned by the British Army in 1779. It was rebuilt in 1826 and burned by the Federal Army in 1865.

The resultant color is very impressive. I like the colorcast of the mage. The ruins make a fine subject for a picture.

wow, what a fantastic result

so, after all that history, it's just sitting abandoned ?

@sherri: The church is on private property but open to the public. Is is monitored against vandalizm. I've heard it is rented out for outdoor weddings.
