More About St. Helena’s Episcopal Church
Sue Jarrett, a Beaufort resident who shared one of the photos above, adds additional insight into St. Helena’s: “St. Helena Episcopal Church, now known as the Parish Church of St. Helena, was founded in 1712 by the Church of England and built in 1724. After the American Revolution it became part of the newly formed Protestant Episcopal Church. It was expanded and remodeled for many years, and now still looks like it did in 1842. In 1861 it was used as a hospital for black Northern troops.”
