St. Luke's Historical Society has a new website. You are invited to check us out at stlukespowhatanHS.weebly.com
On October 15, 1989, St. Luke's was designated as a historic landmark and placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior. A bronze plaque situated on the front of the Church commemorates the event. Our 1844 Church building is characterized as having "...symmetry and harmony, but, above all, simplicity."
The Church Cemetery has graves dating back to 1846. Many veterans of the War Between the States are buried in the oldest part of the cemetery.
