Parish marks 175th anniversary The last day of the old year is the first day of a celebration marking the 175th anniversary of St. Thomas' Episcopal Parish. The church building is one of the few in Washington County that is original, having been in continual use for worship since 1835. It was closed for awhile during the Civil War, when it became a field hospital and headquarters for Union troops occupying the town. After the occupation ended, the church was reopened, restored and with only a few changes to its exterior and interior, is still the same as it was originally.
