Inscription. This site was the home of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer. In 1745, Chief Justice of South Carolina Charles Pinckney purchased the property known as Collenton Square. In 1853 Miss Pinckney donated property for a chapel to be built where visiting sailors of all faiths could worship. In 1915, the chapel and the home for seaman were erected with funds donated by the Charleston Port Society and the Episcopal Church. The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer was consecrated in 1916 by Bishop Guercy. In 1964 the chapel was deconsecrated as it was no longer needed.
The religious symbols were removed in 1967 from the stained glass and the property was opened as a restaurant. On September 2, 1989, Hurricane Hugo struck the Charleston area and damaged the building. Renovation and restoration took place shortly thereafter.
