- Architectural note:
- The antebellum, Gothic Revival church was planned by the nationally prominent New York architect Richard Upjohn, but the church was heavily damaged during the battle of Plymouth in 1864. Only the apse and tower were retained when it was rebuilt in 1893 to the design of C.J. Hartage of Rocky Mount, NC.
- Historical note:
- Civil War bombardment of Plymouth damaged and weakened the church. Chiefly the tower survives, the remainder having been rebuilt from designs by architect C. E. Hartge.
