Winter Churchyard

Old Headstones, Unitarian Churchyard, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok

The lush appearance of the Unitarian Churchyard is just one of the attractions of this old Southern Gothic graveyard. 
Ironwork fences try to contain the luxuriant growth of ferns and grasses. Crepe Myrtle trees draped in Spanish moss overhang ancient headstones that tell brief stories of mysterious past lives. A walk among the rampant growth and slowly decaying graves, in the shadow of the Colonial era church, is like stepping back in time to a place completely isolated from the present.
