History

It’s possible Anglican services were held as early as 1706 in our area. The initial records for St. Peter’s were contained in the parish records of Christ Episcopal Church in Dover, which were destroyed in a fire in the early nineteenth-century. We do know in 1740 Mr. Thomas Green donated one acre of land in Duck Creek for a church and graveyard. A small wooden chapel was  completed in 1744. The chapel needed to be replaced with a larger brick church 20 years later. At the time, we were sharing the Rev. Charles Inglis with Christ Church, Dover and he named the new brick church St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in 1764.
