Built around 1740, burned in a forest fire in 1886. So not much to see. Easy to get to, you can even view the church from the comfort of your car which is a good idea as there were mosquitos everywhere.

Good reminder of history and culture of the low country. Take your time and read the markers. Tour at your own pace. Warning: bring and use the bug spray.

This is a really cool place to check out and see how they made this place. The walls are covered in seashells and lime, which we where told was called tabby. Its cool to see ruins that date back to the 1740s. Overall, if you love old architecture, its worth checking out.

There is something about the Chapel of Ease that is so peaceful and scenically beautiful it's hard to describe. To stand there on a quite day and look up at the sky provided is magical.

This was a pretty creepy/cool site to see. I wouldn't plan out a trip just to see it but if you are in the area it would be a neat spot to check out.

It was a short and free visit, the church ruins still had some supporting timber remnants around the windows... The Chruch was built in the 1700's . If not mistaken some of the Fripp family was buried there. I assume the family had some influence on nearby nearby Fripp Island.

Old Church ruins. It was interesting to walk around and wonder what it was like back in the day. It is rumored to be haunted as well.

We enjoy old ruins and this was a really nice place. Make sure to wear bug spray and watch watch for ant hills.

We had a great visit. We were visiting Port Royal for a five day retreat. The Island is only a half an hour drive from Port Royal. Built around 1740 AD the ruins still stand strong and offers a rich history of the Island.
