Reputed as the first Episcopal Church in Western North Carolina, St. John in the Wilderness was built in the 1830s. The church is in Flat Rock, USA, and is famous for being one of the very few churches where white men and slaves used to sit together. In fact, the very first wedding performed here was that between slaves. Till 1958, the number of members was not very great, and there was a possibility that the church would have to shut, but fortunately, the number increased and it has never seen a bad day since. The building of the church was renovated in 2004, and many new designs were included. Do visit this historic church.

St. John In The Wilderness Episcopal Church Reviews & Ratings
Wonderful feeling just walking into the beautiful church. I love visiting here
Very warm and gracious congregation makes newcomers or visitors feel very welcome in this historic Episcopal church.
Beautiful church and graveyard, filled with history. It's an eye opening experience to view the slave and Freeman graveyard. Which is honorably observed and tenderly cared for. The history of the Church and its congregation is a must read. You can not pass by without stopping. It's a monumental part of North and South Carolina history.
Beautiful historic property
Very good concert
