Pompion Hill Chapel

  • Pompion Hill

Pompion Hill Chapel is an 18th-century Georgian jewel. This chapel of ease was the center of religious life for the rural residents of Berkeley county during the colonial period. As a part of the management of this historic structure, the private vestry council agreed to allow WLCC researchers the opportunity to laser scan the interior and exterior of the building. From this digital model, WLCC researchers compiled a comprehensive list of architectural conditions, which were digitally mapped onto the 3D model. With these conditions in hand, the vestry will be better prepared to manage and care for the chapel. This research was supported by the South Carolina State Historic Preservation Office, and their Historic Preservation Grant program.
