( Copyright Mel Steinhauer all rights reserved ) In South Carolina, near the coast on St. Helena Island you can take a peaceful trip back in time. A road called Lands End will take you way back to our Colonial Era when cotton, indigo and rice plantations filled the countryside. Before this structure was built in 1742, plantation owners and workers had to go a considerable distance to the primary parish church located in the city of Beaufort. Travel in those days was often not easy, so many were not able to regularly attend. For that reason, church leaders decided to build a new house of worship close to where the people worked and lived to ease their travel. Here, it faithfully served their needs until it was eventually destroyed by a fire in 1886, but for over 100 years it was a ... Chapel Of Ease.
