Inscription. St. Paul's, Stono
St. Paulís Parish, one of the ten original parishes of colonial S.C., was created by the Church Act of 1706. The first parish church was built in 1708 on a bluff overlooking the Stono River. The parsonage and outbuildings were destroyed during the Yamasee War of 1715. After St. Johnís Colleton Parish was created in 1734, a new parish church for St. Paulís was built 8 mi. NW in 1736.

Foundation ruins and a few graves are all that remain of the first St. Paulís, Stono.
