Perhaps no place else in America ...

... tells a more poignant story of our complex history than a small plot of land quietly tucked away along the banks of Chapel Creek in Berkeley County, S.C. Dedicated in 1715 as "sacred ground" by Col. George Chicken, the site has served at various times as a footpath, trade route, campsite, fort, plantation chapel and Protestant church. The events that have occurred here vividly tell the stories of the Native Americans, colonists, enslaved people, Revolutionary War Patriots, the Lowcountry's great plantation society, and Civil War soldiers - all of whom once lived, worshipped, fought and died here.

Innumerable dramas of good and evil emanate from the spot, though decades of neglect allowed its poignant stories to fade. Today, a dedicated group of volunteers has established the site as a non-profit organization charged with preserving, restoring and sharing the stories of this historical site that is such an important chapter in the story of America. 100% of all donations directly fund restoration, preservation and educational efforts.
