Founded in 1866 to serve the spiritual and educational life of newly freed slaves in the community. This building was constructed in the 1890s by a master craftsman who was born a slave, James Vester Miller. Today St. Matthias is a vibrant multiracial congregation meeting in this beautiful historic interior.
Sunday services at 11AM. Musical concerts most Sundays at 3PM.
