Chapel of Ease Ruins - Photo by Christopher Beaty

The Chapel of Ease on St. Helena is an old 17th-century church that now lies in ruins among the trees on Saint Helena Island.  The Anglican chapel was built in 1740 by the planters living on Saint Helena Island. Churches make chapels of ease for parishioners who have difficulty travelling to worship at larger parish churches. The National Register of Historic Places added the ruins to the register in 1988. The trees cast soft light for several hours in the morning and evening. The bonus of this photo location is that these ruins are not well known and as a result, very few tourists visit them.
