Established in 1930 and maintained by the Garden Club of Charleston, this walkway passes through several historic walkways and cemeterys in downtown Charleston. It begins near the west cemetary of Saint Philip's Episcopal Church. The pathway continues into the graveyard of the Circular Church, and then across Meeting Street to the path on the north side of the Gibbes Museum, and into its sculpture courtyard. Continuing past the Charleston Library Society, across King Street, it goes into the yard of the Unitarian Church. Finally, it passes through the cemetery of Saint John's Lutheran Church. This is a great way to see some of Charleston's old churches, graveyards, and museums. As the name implies, there are indeed quite a few gateways along the way.
