This project was started as a subcommittee of the Berkeley County Chamber of Commerce and is now an independent non-profit organization with 501 c(3) status committed to unraveling the secrets of the ancient place and charged with preserving and restoring its location in Berkeley County (near Charleston), South Carolina. Its mission is also to share the story of its people and their world, and their importance in the American Story.
All donations of money, time, assistance and best wishes are appreciated as the chamber committee divulges the secrets of that holy ground and discover riches that are Berkeley County, South Carolina.
This committee strongly supports the efforts of TheFoxbankProject.org as well.
The Cross and Crown seal comes from carvings found on the headstone of George Lynes, buried on this site and is possibly engraved on other undiscovered headstones. There are many interpretations of this symbol: that we are to be reminded that rules of man must be sanctioned by the laws of God; that our eternal reward and crown are to be found in heaven, among others.
The roses on the crown are a symbol of England, indicating an allegiance with the Church of England.
