No more charming example of the Jeffersonian idiom survives than this small but highly polished rural Episcopal Church erected in 1831-32 in southern Albemarle County.


The building is a product of William B. Phillips, a Jeffersonian workman who designed and built a variety of houses and public buildings in his mentor's mode.


Notable for his “near flawless” Flemish bond brickwork and academically appropriate and correct Doric proportions of the building, this lovely small church continues to serve St. Anne’s Parish.
