Places of Worship
Edisto is home to over fifteen churches of varying theologies. Many if these religious establishments have been a part of Edisto’s culture for hundreds of years. Each of these churches carries an important historical building block in the story of the islands people. The large number of churches for such a rural island with so few residences is explained with the most simple of reasons—The parishioners needed to be able to walk or take a wagon to services in less than an hours’ time. These wonderful places are scattered through the island and offer an amazing look at architecture, history, and an opportunity to explore the islands outlaying communities.
