St. Lawrence Cemetery


St. Lawrence Cemetery, Huguenin Avenue, Charleston, S.C.

Isn't it beautiful? The giant metalwork cross makes for a dramatic entrance to St. Lawrence Catholic Cemetery. There isn't much to find online about St. Lawrence Cemetery. If you drive up Meeting St. until you cross the railway track there is a little sign pointing to the right directing you to Magnolia Cemetery. The entrance to St. Lawrence is on the right. You can walk through from Magnolia.

It is a wonderful place to spend a few hours with a camera. Usually it's just me and a couple of confederate history buffs hanging out there. They worship at the Hunley submariner's tombs while I hop over tombs taking pictures of the angel's faces.
