French Huguenot Church - Charleston, SC - Speechless Sunday

The first group of French Huguenot's arrived in Charleston around 1681 and organized the first French Huguenot congregation.  The first French Huguenot Church was constructed around 1687.  The present day French Huguenot is of Gothic Revival style and was built in 1845. 

In the early days of Charleston history, church services were scheduled around the tide.  The "planters", who lived up river on the Ashley River or the Cooper River, would arrive on ebb tide and return on flood tide.  Image that.

On my Gosh !!  Thanks Leesa for the reminder.  All day long yesterday seemed like Saturday, especially since my Auburn Tigers beat the Alabama Crimson Tide in football.  Have a great day !!
