St. Luke's Church, oldest church in the eastern USA



DescriptionRatingInfo
St. Luke's Church, also known as Benns Church, Old Brick Church, or Newport Parish Church is an historic church located in the unincorporated community of Benns Church, near Smithfield in Isle of Wight County, Virginia, and has been known variously as the Old Brick Church or the Newport Parish Church long before it was given its present name in 1820. It is allegedly the oldest surviving church in one of the original thirteen states that became part of the United States in 1776. It is also the oldest existing church of English foundation in America and the nation's only surviving Gothic building. St. Luke's Church is estimated to date to 1632 or 1682. On October 15, 1966, St. Luke's was designated a National Historic Landmark and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in recognition of its historic and architectural distinction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Luke%27s_Church_(Smithfield,_Virginia)
