St. James, Goose Creek Chapel of Ease Historical Site is believed to be the site of a significant battle during the Yemassee War in 1715, it was later a Chapel of Ease for early colonists in the
Charleston, SC area. That building burned down during the Revolutionary War and Bethlehem Baptist Church was built near it on the grounds and was moved to its final destination around the 1880s. The graves that are still there, as well as the archaeological ruins from the Battle and churches that stood there are in desperate need of conservation and preservation.
