1. Emmanuel Church at Brook Hill Episcopal Marker
Inscription. Built directly west by John Stewart of Brook Hill and consecrated by the Right Reverend John Johns on 6 July 1860, Emmanuel Church (Episcopal) is a classic example of late-antebellum Gothic Revival architecture. Considerable military activity took place nearby during the Civil War, when troops from both sides occupied the church. Wounded soldiers were treated there, and many Confederate soldiers lie buried in the cemetery. The Right Reverend Richard Hooker Wilmer, second bishop of Alabama and the only bishop ordained by the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Confederate States of America, was Emmanuel Church's first rector.
