Calvary Episcopal Church History:

The Calvary Episcopal Church was started by Daniel and Helen Craig Blake in 1857, when they started having organized religious gatherings in their home. The current Calvary Episcopal Church building was consecrated in August of 1859.

During the Civil War, the grove near the Calvary Episcopal Church was used as a rallying place for volunteers. The church building and the carriage shed were used as a barracks and as a hospital during this time. Both Union and Confederate soldiers used The Old Well as a watering place as well.

Calvary Episcopal Church

Known for the Phantom Rider of the Confederacy. The Phantom Rider of the Confederacy is a ghostly woman riding on a ghostly palomino horse. She appears near the Calgary Episcopal Church on the road and then gallops away suddenly as though she is being pursued.
