St. Peter’s Adds Another Tour Opportunity

Are you interested in Fernandina’s history and historic buildings? Join a free 45-minute tour sponsored by The Foundation of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church to learn about the “Jewel of Centre Street.”

The tours on Thursday April 4 at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday April 6 at 11:00 a.m. are fully subscribed, so an additional tour has been added: Friday, April 5, at 5:30 p.m. Meet in the courtyard on the north side of the church, at Eighth Street and Centre Street to hear about how the parish was formed in 1858, how it survived its great fire, unique facts about the cemetery, and more.

The talk will highlight the church’s historic architecture, stained glass windows, and unique carved pieces made from rare wood species.

The presentation will conclude with music from the historic organ featuring 839 pipes, some as small as a drinking straw.

This free tour is a great segue into dinner or brunch in our historic downtown. Please RSVP to Patty Lanier 904-261-4293 or [email protected] by April 2.
