2. Payne’s Church Marker
The brick colonial church building on this site was abandoned after the Revolution when the Church of England ceased to be the established church. It became a Baptist church in 1840. The brick church was torn down by Union troops during the Civil War and the bricks used to build winter quarters. In 1866 the brick church was replaced by the frame structure that stands today.
