I'd seen Hickory Neck Church and its historical marker several times when driving to or from Williamsburg. But, I'd never stopped there to inspect it further. I'm interested in these colonial era brick churches and wanted to see it closer.

The surviving historical structure of Hickory Neck Church was built in 1774 as the north transept to a 1734 church building. The church was pattered much like Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg, including a surrounding wall and trasnsepts. During the American Revolution, the church was used as field hospital. It gradually fell in to disuse following the war and the main part of the church was demolished in 1834. The surviving building was used as a school during much of the 19th century and reactivated as an Episcopal church in 1917.

A newer church has been built nearby, so I suspect the historic structure is used only on special occasions. I was not able to venture inside, but, peering in the windows it looked quite similar to churches of the period. But, I found it interesting to see this site up close.
