Hilton Head Monthly, October 1996

Mr. Wilbourn of the Queens Chapel AME Church has identified the picture of the church formerly located on Robbers Row as being the Methodist Church now located on Beach City Road.  “It is believed that the church was taken apart and reassembled there in 1892, the date on the foundation cornerstone” says Wilborn. The picture was taken in 1864 in what is today’s Port Royal Plantation.
