In this Sacred Place

Carolina Stories travels to the Beaufort Lowcountry and beyond for In This Sacred Place, a documentary that takes a look at the sanctuaries and sites of cultural and historical significance in that part of the state.  The program also examines the traditions that make these sites relevant, even today. 

In This Sacred Place is an exploration of the spiritual journeys that have shaped our cultural heritage.  From Beaufort’s Beth Israel Synagogue to the Pon Pon Chapel of Ease in Jacksonboro, the program transports viewers into places of worship that are as rich and diverse as the congregations they serve.

"I’m fascinated by the manner in which the early religious practices and the churches of old have influenced the way folks in this area live today,” said Beryl Dakers, the show’s producer.

Some of the other sanctuaries that are highlighted are the Greater St. Paul AME Campgrounds of Harleyville, which is one of five active traditional camp meetings in the Lowcountry, and the first African Baptist Church in Beaufort that was bought and built by newly freed slaves after the Civil War. 

Cemeteries, the ruins of early churches and other natural areas once considered sacred, are also included in the documentary.

In this Sacred Place premiered on Carolina Stories in March 2006.
