St. Philip's Church celebrates 250th anniversary -
with a little help from NC Dames

When Brunswick Town's St. Philip's
Church celebrated its 250th anniversary
on May 26, 2018, NC Dames were there
in spirit, as symbolized by the floral arrangements the Society provided for
the occasion. Assorted flowers and
ferns decorated the windows behind
where the church's altar once stood.
On this same wall is a marble marker installed by the NC Dames in 1902 and dedicated to the memory of Colonel Maurice Moore who founded the Town
of Brunswick in 1725.

St. Philip's occupies a prominent place
in the history of the NC Dames. Starting
in 1899, the ladies organized annual pilgrimages to the site of the church
ruins in order to raise awareness of its historical significance. The NC Dames
are credited with having played an important role in the preservation of the brick structure.

For more information about the pilgrimages, visit the Scrapbook on this web site.
