1. St. Johnís Protestant Episcopal Church Marker
Inscription. Three miles west stood St. Johnís Protestant Episcopal Church of Cumberland Parish. Bishop William Meade consecrated the building, later known as St. Johnís Woodend, in 1832. The Rev. Charles C. Taliaferro was its first minister. The churchís predecessor, Flat Rock Church, had been built by 1760. With its recessed entrance and low church chancel arrangement, St. Johnís reflected the distinctive style of church architecture then popular in Virginia. The congregation dispersed by 1963. The legacy of parish records, communion silver, stained glass windows, and stewardship of the cemetery passed to the Episcopal Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew, in Kenbridge.
