Inscription. The Carpenter Gothic style Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, built 1873-74 was located here. Among the church's parishioners was former Confederate President Jefferson Davis. In 1892, a new church, designed by architect Thomas Sully, was constructed south of the original building. Only the belltower of the 1892 church survived Hurricane Camille in 1969. Both it and the older church were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
