Civil War: St. John's Episcopal Church

Founded in 1851, St. John's Church was used to shelter wounded troops after the battles of Manassas in July 1861 and August 1862. During the war, the church was burned by federal troops. Reconstructed in 1867, it is a one-story wood structure in the "Carpenter Gothic" style with stained glass windows.
