The St. James Episcopal Church in Baton Rouge, LA was founded in 1835 and has been an active part of the community ever since. The church was built on land donated by Mr. James G. Carter and has undergone several renovations and expansions over the years. In 1839, the church was consecrated and became the first Episcopal church in Baton Rouge. The church has played a significant role in the history of Baton Rouge, including hosting the first public school in the city and serving as a hospital during the Civil War. The church continues to be a vibrant and active part of the Baton Rouge community.
We installed new Vermont Semi-weathering Green slate throughout the church campus. We also replaced all of the flashings with new copper work. We then restored the steeple with new slate and restored the copper cross. We also restored the brick and masonry work on the bell tower.
