Inscription. St. Luke's Church, founded in 1894 at Idlewild and Union, moved to this location in 1912 where the Right Rev. Thomas F. Gailor, 3rd Bishop of Tennessee, laid the church's cornerstone.

On Nov. 24, 1940 the first services of Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church were held here, marking the merger of two historic churches.
