If you have never gotten the chance to visit the Old Sheldon Church ruins in Beaufort County, South Carolina I highly recommend seeing it. It is definitely off the beaten path and so peaceful. I took my two bulldogs, Walter and Albert, on a Sunday afternoon.
The church was first burned in 1779 during the Revolutionary War and then again, for the last time, in 1865 by General Sherman. Inside the church are the remains of Colonel William Bull, who assisted General Oglethorpe with the layout of Savannah.
