The original Circular Congregational Church was built in 1804 by the famous Charleston architect Robert Mills, the designer of the Washington Monument in D.C. The original building was said to house 2,000 visitors.

The building burnt down in 1861 by a fire and was rebuilt in 1890 and became the building that stands there now. The building is in a Romanesque style and includes some of the original bricks from the “Old Circular”.

The church is currently a practicing Presbyterian Church and is available for visitors to explore the grounds and to join the faith and worship. The structure of the building includes two powerful symbols: the circle for the exterior and the Greek Cross for the exterior.
