While staying on St Helena I ventured over to the Chapel. The remains are well intact and a great example of tabby. It was a peaceful place under the live oaks, there were a few graves of which I've heard are haunted. There was a descriptive historical marker. This is a great spot for photos.

nice old historic stop, outside of Beaufort. Excellent for photos and for history buffs. The ghost legend associated with the graves is kinda spooky.

Not a lot to do here, but it is interesting to see if you are in the area, should also stop at fort Fremont and the Penn center. That way you can make a few hours out of it. Have lunch in Beaufort or Port Royal. Nice day trip from Hilton head

Photo opportunity.

Until I saw the pictures submitted by fellow Trip Advisor participant, CCC_wanderlust, I had not considered this as a place to visit, but her “Tabby details” photo and the marvelous light she had for her shoot intrigued me.

Tabby, I learned, is a construction material made of equal parts water, lime, sand, ash and oyster shells and the texture it creates is a photographer’s muse.

Modest as they are, these ruins are worth a stop if you are on St. Helena Island.

A special nod to CCC_wanderlust for her inspiration.

Well preserved ruins and cemetery were a pleasure to go to. Take your camera and walk the grounds. I was amazed by the headstones at the grave and the history you can learn there.
