St. John’s Church was built in 1874 as an Episcopal church. Today, it still stands in Washington and is even listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Washington Garden Club acquired the property and did a beautiful and historicaly accurate restoration. St. John’s is still ornate with the original pews, bell tower, and even updated with period lighting. The site was even used for the filing of The Free State of Jones starring Matthew McConaughey.
Brides looking for a venue with a vintage feel can tie the knot at St. John’s. Amenities include a dressing area, a stage, and a full kitchen. The church can also be rented for social and other private functions. For booking information, please contact Susan of the Washington Garden Club at 337-945-8274.
