St. Matthew's Lutheran Church Charleston


St. Matthew's Lutheran Church Charleston

St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church Charleston was built in 1872 after the German-speaking Lutherans outgrew their original church.  The Gothic Revival church was designed by local architect John Henry Deveraux. The church’s 297-foot steeple once made it the tallest building in South Carolina and it continues to have the tallest spire. In 1965, a fire destroyed much of the interior of the church and steeple, which crashed into King Street. The damaged portions of the church were carefully restored except for the finial on the steeple which was too expensive to replace. Original features include the stained glass windows in the apse and under the balcony, as well as the pulpit.
