Church of the Holy Trinity, Grahamville
2718 Bees Creek Road, Ridgeland | (843)726-3743
This stately Episcopal Church was spared on General Sherman’s march through the area simply because it had been used as a headquarters for Federal troops during the Civil War. Built at Grahamville in 1855, the church now has a recently refurbished interior. A more modern parish house nearby simulates the Gothic design of the church building. The church Bible, probably stolen during the Civil War, was returned to Grahamville in 1928. A New York music publisher had discovered it in an attic.

Hardeeville Methodist Church
111 Main Street, Hardeeville
No sooner had the Hardeeville Methodist Church been dedicated for worship in 1860 than the nation was launched into civil war and the building was put to use as a hospital. The frame church building originally contained a sizeable gallery for use by local slaves. Church members also adhered to the custom of seating men on the right and women on the left.

Euhaw Baptist Church
2576 Bees Creek Road, Ridgeland | (843)726-3343
Although the existing building at Grahamville is relatively new, the original Euhaw Baptist Church was organized in 1751 as part of the Charles Town Baptist Association. Located on Euhaw Creek, a few miles from the present site, the original building fell into disuse as families began moving to Grahamville, and in 1865 it was destroyed by Union troops. The present structure, built in 1907 has beautiful twin towers on each side of the entrance.

Hardeeville Recreation Center
285 John Smith Road | (843)227-4089
This state of the art 35,000 square foot facility has a fully equipped fitness center, indoor walking track, basketball courts, Tai Chi classes, yoga and much, much more.

Gillisonville Baptist Church
10158 Grays Highway, Ridgeland
Gillisonville was the governmental seat of Beaufort District when the church building was completed in 1838. The pulpit, in fact, had once been the judge’s seat. All that has been changed on this simple but beautiful church is the steeple, which was demolished by a Union cannon during the Civil War. Box pews and a slave gallery in the rear remains today. Union troops used the church as a headquarters during the war, and one of the old Communion plates still used today is inscribed: “War of 1861-2-3-4. Feb. 1865 This done by a Yankee soldier.”

Purrysburg Monument

Pratt Memorial Library
451A Wilson Street, Ridgeland |(843)726-774
Jasper County’s public library in Ridgeland is significant both for what it houses and for its exterior. Inside, the walls of the library are graced with more than 200 portraits and maps relating to lowcountry history. Some 250 rare books tell the history of the area, and archeological artifacts make for fascinating displays. Outside, the building is adorned by a beautiful garden designed by nationally renowned landscape architect Richard K. Webel. It was Mrs. Webel who donated the building to the people of Jasper County in memory of her late husband, Frederic R. Pratt. The building was formerly a part of the Ridgeland Elementary School, built in the 1920’s.

Robertville Baptist Church
26 Robertville Drive, Robertville
Black Swamp Baptist Church was organized in 1781, but its church building was burned by Sherman’s troops during the Civil War. About three years later the Black Swamp congregation bought the present-day structure, then a 20-year-old Episcopal Church building, and moved it from Gillisonville. The white frame building has Greek Revival architectural features. Black Swamp Baptist was renamed Robertville Baptist in 1934 to honor the native Robert family, one member of which was the author of Robert’s Rules of Order.

Thomas Heyward Jr. Tomb
Thomas Heyward, Jr. (1749-1809) was most famous as a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was a member of the South Carolina Bar, a statesman, a circuit court judge, and a founder and the first president of the Agricultural Society of South Carolina. When he was named a delegate to the Continental Congress in 1776 he was not yet 30 years old. The burial site is across the creek from White Hall Plantation where Heyward lived. A half-mile-long lane of live oaks leads from Highway 462 to the family cemetery where the State of South Carolina erected a monument and bust of Heyward in 1920.

Hardeeville

The City of Hardeeville sits just off Interstate 95. In the downtown area you can find Argent Engine #5. It is a testimony to the days when the Argent Lumber Company was an integral part of the area’s economy. Mill Pond Landing is the host of several fishing tournaments and the annual Hardeeville Native American Pow Wow. If you’re looking for a nature hike in Hardeeville, look no farther than Sgt Jasper Park. Located just outside of town, this is a great place to get off the interstate and stretch your legs in the heart of the Lowcountry.

A little way from the landing, a cross shaped monument stands where the settlement of Purrysburg once was. Land was given to Swiss colonizer Jean Pierre Purry in 1731 by the King of England but the establishment failed. Located just south of Hardeeville is the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge offers a variety of opportunities to explore and enjoy the great outdoors from sunrise to sunset every day. You can observe and photograph wildlife, fish, or during the season, hunt white-tailed deer.

The Hardeeville Chamber hosts a fun filled SC/GA Border Cook Off BBQ competition each spring.

Ridgeland

The Town of Ridgeland is also just off Interstate 95 and accessible from exits 21 and 22. The Blue Heron Nature Trail is a terrific place to stop to give everyone in the family, even your four legged members, a chance to stretch out their legs and get a breath of fresh air. There are many Historic Churches in Ridgeland and the surrounding villages. Ridgeland is also the home of the Blue Heron Nature Trail, Morris Center and Harold Turpin Park.

The town celebrates its connection with the Gopher Tortoise each year in October at the Gopher Hill Festival. In February, the Jasper County Jamboree draws sportsmen and women from all across the nation to compete in this American Kennel Club event.

Both the City of Hardeeville and the Town of Ridgeland offer several choices for accommodations and dining experiences. They are great examples of typical small towns in the South Carolina Lowcountry. You can learn more about these wonderful communities at the Jasper County Chamber of Commerce.
