Significance: This Protestant Episcopal Church was first established as a mission in 1832. It was established through the efforts of Mrs. Mary Hayes Gloster, a widow from Warrington, N.C. Her slaves built the church patterned after the church at her former home. The small brick church is notable for its setting, its pristine simplicity and the inclusion of a slave gallery.
