Christ Church, Frederica is one of the most serene places we visited. The grounds are gorgeous with more moss-draped live oaks, holly and cedar trees. The congregation at Christ Church traces back to 1776. Brothers John and Charles Wesley, considered the fathers of Methodism in America, once preached under the giant oaks. The first church was partially destroyed by Union Troops during the Civil War. The current structure was built in 1884 and is home to an active Episcopal congregation. The site is also home to a cemetery with graves of early settlers dating back to as early as 1803.
If you visit Christ Church, just across the street you will find the entrance to Wesley Garden, dedicated to John and Charles Wesley. I wish I could return in spring as this garden is home to 4000 azaleas. I bet they put on quite a show!
