St. John's

St. John's the Evangelist Episcopal Church stands on East Church Street.  Founded in the 1880's, it was rebuilt in 1887 , and  enlarged in the 1900s.  It was also used as a school for grades one through eighth until 1902.  The Church is noted for its Gothic Revival style, with its trusses that mimic a hammer-beam ceiling that span the sanctuary.  I have understood that it had to close it's doors recently and I lamented about where its parishioners would go?  I have heard that many have joined St. Paul's Episcopal Church just down the street.  Sounds like everything in Edenton is just Down the street from everything else, and it is, which is a part of why the town is so special.  8x10"
