The Church of the Cross
One of the few structures to survive the burning of Bluffton during the Civil War, The Church of the Cross is also one of the most inspiring. Make sure to spend a few quiet moments appreciating the view from the nearby bluff and gaze up the bell tower to see the famed bees behind the church’s holy honey.
Recent renovations have added a remarkable new polish to this storied structure, home to the Bluffton Historical Preservation Society. See what life was like in antebellum Bluffton as you tour one of the few homes to survive the burning of Bluffton.
