Third Sunday - September 2013

Louisa County, Virginia 

St. John's Church - 1844

St. John's Church, Green Springs Parish, is a particularly well preserved and little altered example of the Jeffersonian Classical Revival style. The builder, James Magruder, probably worked under Thomas Jefferson's master builders at the University of Virginia and reflects Jefferson's architectural ideas.

In 1888, St. John's Chapel (see here) was built in the eastern part of Green Springs Parish to accommodate parishioners for whom St. John's Church was too far away to attend regularly.
