Significance: Christ Episcopal Church and Parish House built in 1882-84 and 1888 respectively are notable examples of Victorian Gothic country church architecture. The parishioners, of British and northern United States origins, were the founders of this rural industrial community. Christ Church illustrates the tastes and social and religious orientations uncommon to this area before the industrial exploitation of this mountainous region in the post-reconstruction years. The church is notable for its entirely wooden construction and decor, hand-carved altar and baptismal font, and stained glass windows.
