Jacksonville in Calhoun County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Saint Luke's Episcopal Church
The church was constructed in the Carpenter Gothic Revival style and built using heart pine and board-and-batten. The church was fully furnished according to Upjohn's plan. Sharp and Steel of New York made the altar windows, and they remain as fine examples of stained glass from the antebellum period in Alabama. The elaborate central chandelier was a gift believed to be from the Roosevelt family, and it originally burned whale oil. Saint Luke's is the oldest church building in Jacksonville and second oldest in Calhoun County. The parish house was constructed in 1992.
Erected 2018 by Saint Luke's Episcopal Church.
