The 2011 Preservation Award was presented to St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church as they prepare for their 75th anniversary celebration. The original sanctuary, dedicated on March 19, 1939 was inspired by the parish churches of rural England.
Over the years, the church has undergone three major construction projects. Yet with each project, the church nestled into its creek side location stayed true to the faithful interpretation of the original English country heritage.
The Heritage Award celebrates the spirit of the community through wonderful structures such as St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. There is a community pride that is felt toward this building whether one attends its services, or simply enjoys driving by to take in its splendor.
