St. Paul's Episcopal Church[edit | edit source]


St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Brownville is currently the oldest house of worship standing in Jefferson County.

Built with limestone in the Federal style in 1820, the church was originally a union church of different denominations, but was basically Presbyterian in nature. In 1824, the church was purchased by Episcopalians and an Episcopal parish was formed in 1826. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
