The Christ Church (Episcopal) was established in 1823 and is the oldest Episcopal congregation in Mobile and the state of Alabama. The cornerstone was laid in 1835 and the building was completed in 1842 by Bishop Leonidas Polk, the Bishop of Louisiana and Alabama. Polk also served as a general in the Confederate Artillery Corps. The impressive rectory for the church was built in 1900 and is located just behind it. The church is open 9 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday. Located at the corner of Church and St Emanuel Streets.
