We visited after I had read some of the Eugenia Price books. The cemetery is absolutely beautiful, and rich with history. We enjoyed reading the inscriptions on the tombstones.

Make sure to walk the cemetery as it is IMO the feature of St Simons church. Beautiful old oaks - very 'old southern'.

One of my favorite places on the island. If you have ever read Eugenia Price's trilogy about the island you will want to come here for sure.

I don't think so. It's a cemetery with a small chapel.

Yes. It's a very active congregation with multiple services on Sunday and some weekday services as well. Look on their website - ccfssi
