Bethel United Methodist Church Charleston

Bethel United Methodist Church Charleston, dedicated in 1853, is the second church on the site. The original church, Old Bethel, was moved to the back of the lot. It was later sold to a black Congregation and moved to Calhoun Street. The current Greek Revival structure designed by E. Curtis not only survived the Civil War but was the only Methodist church in Charleston to remain open during the war. Following the Civil War and Reconstruction, the church underwent an extensive renovation. During the renovation, Charleston was rocked by the earthquake of 1886 causing only minor damage to the church. Notable features of the church include galleries supported by Doric columns, stained glass windows, and stenciling on the interior walls.
