Christ Church Churchyard - Greenville SC

One of many CSA Iron Crosses at Christ Church

In downtown Greenville, South Carolina, you will find two fine old cemeteries within a few blocks of each other - Springwood and Christ Church. The churchyard of Christ Church Episcopal completely surrounds the church and occupies nearly the entire grounds. The first graves date to 1835 and are now underneath the current church building. The churchyard is the final resting place for many Confederate soldiers, as well as political figures from the Civil War era and later.
