Zion Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1816–1819 and later. North side of Main St. (WV 9) at the intersection with North Church St. at the east edge of Hedgesville

Zion Episcopal Church, which predates the town it serves, postdates an earlier Episcopal chapel. The body of the rectangular building is Federal in style, with large windows and a small lunette high in the front gable. A charming Victorian-era entrance porch, with Stick Style trim, and a small, square belfry upstage the earlier features. The interior has a balcony lit by windows in the gabled facade, kerosene lamps, and a pressed metal ceiling. Behind the church is the Hedgesville Cemetery, which contains early stones and ironwork.
