Strawberry Chapel is rectangular with windows and doors on opposite sides to maximize air flow.
The number of windows and their ornate design hint at the wealth of those that built it.
Several of the windows have well fitting shutters. Sadly, many of the original window panes have been broken by vandals.

The Anglican Church established “chapels of ease” throughout rural South Carolina in the 1700s for members to attend services close to home without trekking to an actual church.
Built in 1725, Strawberry Chapel is the only remaining structure from the Childsbury settlement on the Cooper River. The chapel is private property and Ted and I attended an educational / history event on the site.
