Christ Episcopal Church and Rectory



Read All About It:

Designed by G.W.G. Van Winkle and constructed in 1898, the Christ Episcopal Church of Douglas is a modest example of the Gothic Revival Style which became popular in the middle and latter part of the 19th century. The church was the focal point of cultural and social evolution in the small frontier community of Douglas. Voluntary associations sponsored by church groups awakened settlers to a recognition of shared social and moral interests and fostered social cohesion during early settlement.

The Christ Episcopal Church was utilized by all denominations before the construction of their own churches. Activities sponsored by the church organizations included carnivals, balls and concerts, ice cream socials, bazaars, picnics, plays, holiday celebrations, and weekly dance suppers for the entire community. Today the Church continues to function as a community meeting place and church groups are still active in sponsoring community activities begun in the first years of settlement.
