Note:
In 1881 the long-established Methodist congregation on Edenton Street completed a handsome church with a tower 184 feet high, the "loftiest in the city." This is probably the church identified by Stephanie Jacobe as designed by West, though the date she supplies is 1884. The cornerstone of the church is inscribed "Organized 1811. Rebuilt 1841, 1881, 1951, 1957."
