St. Mark's Episcopal Church

Search Wilmington North Carolina

Perhaps the oldest Episcopal church in the state that was built by and for African-Americans.

In 1858, a mission comprised of St. Paul's Episcopal Church members was formed. In 1868, African-Americans broke away to form their own congregation and constructed their own sanctuary around 1871. It remains a place of worship for an active congregation.
