The surviving parish churches make up one of the nations largest concentrations of early American church architecture, and their histories, gleaned from archival holdings in America and Great Britain, provide insights into the life of the clergy, vestries, and communicants who worshiped at these sites. The story of the origins and the development of these Anglican church parishes is one of the triumph of the human spirit over the often bewildering circumstances of colonial life.
