Cast Away on New Adventures in Wilmington & Island Beaches
A magnificent Hinners Pipe Organ, built using oak, maple, cypress, mahogany, walnut, pine and ebony sits in a corner. Its approximately 400 pipes are made of pewter, zinc and wood and range from 3 inches long to 9 feet long. Over 40 species of biblical flora and fauna, butterflies, serpents, beetles, bees, spiders, worms and caterpillars and other insects are painted on the pipes in colors of light blue, burgundy, silver and gold. Outside, in the church yard lie many of the county’s early settlers including a 17 year old Civil War officer. The most interesting grave is that of a gentleman who is buried standing up. You are welcome to visit inside the church and to walk the grounds.
