Long Description:
St. John's Episcopal Church

Founded in 1793 by Joseph Doddridge, it is the first Episcopal Church west of the Alleghenies and the oldest continuous worshiping congregation within this religious body in West Virginia. The first church, made of logs, was burned by Indians. Little is known about the second church. The present colonial structure was built in 1849 with hand-hewn stone foundation, handmade bricks, original cherry floor and box pews.
