Historic St. Luke's Church
St. Luke's (circa 1632), is the oldest existing church of English foundation in America and the country's only surviving original brick Gothic church, featuring a Jacobean interior, originally 17th century silver altar fittings, baptismal font, communion table and chairs, and the nation’s oldest, intact organ.

Behind the iron gates of St. Luke’s Memorial Park, the cemetery rests among the historic gardens. Hidden within the aged granite and marble lies a road map of Victorian ideals and local lore. As the light wans across the 17th century bricks, stay awhile and listen to the stories of a bygone era, and discover the cryptic symbols etched across weathered tombs.
