Inscription. After the Civil War demolition of Fairfax Chapel, the original part of this Gothic revival church was built by Southern sympathizers in 1869 on 2 acres donated by Wm. Y. Dulin (Part of 1742 208-acre Geo. Harrison Grant). Original chapel now forms the right and rear side of the sanctuary and vestibule, a tower, new entrance, and stained glass windows were added in 1892. In 1926 Gothic Sunday-school wing was added in the west; Church exterior was stuccoed because color of handmade brick in the earlier portions could not be matched. Land reverts to Dulin heirs if not used for religious purposes
