Immanuel Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1851–1853, 1879–1881, remodeling. 1916, 1967, interior refurbishing. VA 606 (Old Church Rd.; 1.7 miles east of U.S. 360, south side of the road), Mechanicsville

Quaintly “Hansel and Gretel” Gothic with its twin towers and elaborate window moldings, this church began as a simple rectangular box. A post–Civil War remodeling gave it the odd Gothic imagery of the tower, pinnacles, and windows. The interior has been refurbished several times.
