We've been bringing friend to see this church now for over 40 years... The doors are always open and has a gift tube for donations...A short walk though the churches cemetery you see Bath is the Oldest Town in North Carolina.

While in Bath recently for a wedding, we had a chance to visit the St Thomas church. As the oldest church building in NC, it is a beautiful, well maintained church building, still in use today. The history here is phenomenal. I'd definitely recommend it!!
