Located on St. Helena's Island near Beaufort, SC, this chapel is one of the few remaining buildings built from "Tabby". Tabby is a mixture of oyster shells, lime, sand and water and it is similar to today's concrete. Many of South Carolina's plantations were somewhat remote and consequently the plantation owners would, at their own expense, build a chapel of ease, and pay a minister to occasionally hold services for themselves and their families.
