Coastal towns are a testament to resilience. The ocean, the sand and the wind work slowly to corrode infrastructure. Storms and hurricanes bring a more sudden form of destruction. Yet residents continue to return, rebuild and restore their towns. In Southern communities, this intrinsic determination to remain is augmented by a strong love for the preservation of tradition and history. The Pawleys Island House of Worship exemplifies these qualities.
