St. Philips Church

Within the boundaries of this forgotten town are the picturesque ruins of St. Philips Church, which was built by the citizens of Brunswick and principally by the landed gentry about the year 1740. St. Philips Church was built of large brick brought from England. Its walls are nearly 3 feet thick and are solid and almost intact still, the roof and the floor only having disappeared. Its dimensions are nearly as large as those of our modern churches, being 76’ 6”long, 53’ 3” wide, standing walls 24’ 4” and 3 large doors. It must have possessed much architectural beauty and massive grandeur with its high pitched roof, its lofty doors and beautiful chancel windows.
