The church dates from the same time as most of the antebellum homes in the town. The church uses both Greek and Gothic Revival motifs. During the Civil War the church suffered a great deal of damage while being used as a hospital for Union soldiers. In 1866 Bishop Green stated…”the church was robbed of its benches during the time it was used as a hospital.” Blood stains are still visible on the old pine floors.
