St James Episcopal Church – McClellanville, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Charleston County Photos | St James Episcopal Church
This photo shows the St James Episcopal Church on Oak Street in McClellanville, built as a chapel-of-ease in 1889. The Church of England had established parishes in coastal South Carolina since the early 1700s but this “chapel of ease” was built in the late 1800s to accommodate the growing rice planter population in the McClellanville area.
The church is framed with native longleaf pine and cypress wood. The roof and exterior sidewalls are covered with black cypress shingles which were individually shaped with a handsaw.
