This 1858 Gothic structure was one of the first churches in Covington, built by slaves. Three of the stained glass windows were discarded from Canterbury Cathedral in England during renovations, shipped to New Orleans, up the Mississippi and overland to Covington. Services are still held here every Sunday, as they have been for over 160 years.
