1. St. Philip's Parish Marker
Inscription. The first recorded Episcopal service in what is now Transylvania County was June 5, 1856. St Pauls-in-the-Valley (2.5 miles south) was organized soon after and a church constructed. After the Civil War, the parish was reorganized in Brevard as St. Philip's to honour the Charleston parish of many of its founders. A wooden church begun in 1883 and adjacent cemetery were located where the present building now stands. That building was destroyed by fire Christmas Day, 1925. The present Gothic structure, built over the old cemetery in 1926, was designed by architect Louis Humbert Asbury.
 
Erected by family and friends of James Harrison Brown.
