A National Historic Landmark, the church was founded in 1774 almost opened two years later when the Revolutionary War began. It wasn’t until 1787 that the restored church finally opened its doors to devotees. The history of the Unitarian Church is marked by many more obstacles, including the closing during the Civil War and The Cyclone of 1885 hurricane, the Charleston earthquake of 1886 and Hurricane Hugo in 1989.
