St. Mark's Episcopal Church was founded in 1837. Occasional services began before incorporation around 1826. The first church was built in 1838 at 317 Main Street and the first Rector at that time was the Rev. Edmund Embury. That property was sold and the current church was built in 1879 while the Rev. William Catterson was rector.


Over the years the members of St. Mark's have initiated several projects as part of our ministry:




Founded in 1989 as Creation Week Camp, Rise is a week-long summer camp for youth age 11 through 18. 


St. Mark's Terrace


It was the vision and mission of the Rector and Vestry in 1972 to establish decent, safe housing for low income seniors.
