Located on the grounds of St. John's Episcopal Church, Chuckatuck which is celebrating its 250th anniversary.


The roots of St. Johnís Episcopal Church (Chuckatuck) go back to the earliest English settlements along the Nansemond River nearly 360 years ago. The present building, constructed in 1755, is the third on the site. Its walls are solid brick, 25 inches thick. The center aisle is paved with blocks of limestone from England. The Chancel, installed in the 1880s, has elaborate carvings and wainscoting. The colored glass windows also date from this era. The members of St. Johnís are proud to be celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the construction of the present building throughout the fall of 2005 and the spring of 2006. "Honoring our History and Serving Christ NOW!"

This was an exciting cache for me. The immigrant in my family from England by way of Ireland lived in this area of Virginia in the 1630's and may well have even attended the predecessor of St. John's. We lucked out in that as we were photographing the church, a parishioner came up and let us in to see the interior. It was awesome. Great to learn a bit about the history of the church and the area. TNLNSL. Thanks for the history lesson!
