St. Thomas Episcopal Church

-A A +A
Probably early 1880s. 322 Church St. (Alton-Carolina Rd.)
  • St. Thomas Episcopal Church (John M. Miller)

William Walton's crowning building accomplishment was the Episcopal church. Among the important Carpenter's Gothic village churches in the state, this otherwise very plain box, now vinyl sided, displays a notable extravagance in the folding of gabled and splayed shapes to make an attenuated bell tower.
