Dedicated in 1899, on a hilltop overlooking the Indian River, in Jensen Beach, Florida, All Saints’ Episcopal Church, still serves a worshiping congregation. This historic church building and cemetery stand as a testimony to the life and times of local families from the 1890s to the 21st century. Antique stained-glass windows and memorials tell the beautiful legacy shared by all, representing the joys and sorrows of these worshiping families. To accommodate a growing congregation, the church building was moved from the original site, some 150 feet on that hill and expanded twice. The interior changes reflect the worship style of the Episcopal Church spanning the decades. This is a rare depiction of Florida history in an inspirational setting.
