House (Warm Springs Episcopal Church)

-A A +A
Warm Springs Episcopal Church
1852. 27 Church Dr.

Built on land donated by Dr. John Brockenbrough, owner of the Warm Springs Hotel, the church served villagers and hotel guests. The building, an excellent example of a rural interpretation of Greek Revival, has a pedimented gable pierced by a lunette and an entrance highlighted by wide Doric pilasters and an entablature. An open square wooden belfry and tall double-sash windows on the side walls add a vertical emphasis to the building. Deconsecrated in 1976, the church was renovated to serve as a single-family residence.
