50. St. Paul's Episcopal Church

Welcome to Newport. The first stop on the Newport section of the Queen City Tour is St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Built in 1871, this is the second church built on the site. The parish settled here in 1844 and purchased a small brick building which was once a Methodist church. This building was very small and contained a lower gallery which was used for slaves that would attend church with their masters. The church which stands today was built on the site of the former church. This Gothic Revival church was designed by J.R. Neff.
