Less than 10 years after Rome, Georgia was founded, 20 Episcopalians organized a church in 1844. Between 1849 and 1887, eight rectors led St. Peter’s. However, there have been only six rectors at St. Peter’s since 1887. Four of these served for a total of 101 years.
The Rev. Charles Buckner Hudgins became rector in January 1887 and served until 1914. He was responsible for the building of the present chapel and main church. The cornerstone was laid on St. Peter’s Day June 29, 1892. On Christmas Day 1892 the first service was held in the completed chapel. The church was completed in 1898. The first regular service was held at 11 o’clock on Christmas Day 1898. The church tower was completed in 1910.
I have only seen the exterior of the church, but it is stunning. I've seen photos of the interior, which is just as beautiful.
