Description: 

"The oldest extant building in town," the small Episcopal church was "built by slaves" (321). According to Chick Mallison, the "Northern tourists" who expect Jefferson's architecture to be a lot older than it is, call the church "the best, the finest too" (321). Although most of Jefferson and Yoknapatawpha are Baptist or Methodist, the Episcopalians, along with the Presbyterianians, are the oldest congregations in the county, going back to the days before Jefferson was officially a town.
