Christ Episcopal Church

Christ Episcopal Church was constructed in 1841. It is believed that clay, from what is now a field at Robert E. Lee Elementary School was used for the bricks. The Church was consecrated that same year by the Right Reverend Bishop More.

Christ Church served as a hospital during the Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse and still bears scars received from shelling during the battle.IMG_0046

After an Episcopal congregation in Mattaponi dissolved, the church's large lectern Bible (King James Version), dated 1754, was brought to Christ Church. It is now prominently displayed as a church treasure.

This little church is exceptionally well preserved and is a fine example of Virginia's late Federal period architecture.
