"... Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking successive autumns" -George Elliott, in a letter to Miss Lewis, October, 1841.
Built in 1847
Faithful reflections of Autumn wander along Tobbler Creek.
During the Colonial period, chapels of ease were constructed by rice and cotton planters as houses of worship because their plantations were located so far from the churches in Beaufort. This tabby walled church was constructed between 1742 and 1747 for the planters of St. Helena Island. A forest fire destroyed most of it in 1886. All that remain today are its tabby ruins and an adjacent cemetery.
Located at the southwestern tip of St. Helena Island in Beaufort County, Fort Fremont was constructed in 1899 to defend Port Royal Sound. The 15 acre site was purchased for 5.4 million dollars by Beaufort County as a historic site.
Facing Port Royal Sound (to the left of this photograph), Battery Fornance was armed with two 4.7-inch cannons. The guns were mounted on an elevating platform which would raise the cannons to fire at enemy ships, then lower them behind the protection of the sand and concrete ramparts.
An old Mausoleum and graveyard out beside the Chapel of Ease, St. Helena Island, South Carolina.
"The Castle" Beaufort, South Carolina. Built in the 1850's by Dr. Joseph Johnson. When federal troops occupied Beaufort in 1861, the still unfinished castle became a military hospital. The outbuilding did duty as a morgue, and the grounds surrounding the house may very well have served as a graveyard.
