Abstract:
The Stedman Incentive Grant, worth $5,000, assists non-profit organizations in efforts to save endangered architecturally and historically significant property. St. Joseph's Episcopal Church in Fayetteville, organized by black Episcopalians in 1873, received the 2004 grant to assist in roof repairs. The church was built in 1896, and consecrated in 1897. St. Joseph's complex includes the parish hall and parsonage, all linked by arcades and unified by dark green shingled walls. The stained glass windows are among the last windows that were designed and made by Tiffany & Company of New York. The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
