All Saints’ Episcopal Church, 1881, Thomasville

Established in 1980 on All Saints’ Day, this church initially met in the chapel of Thomas County Community College (now Thomas University). For a permanent home, the congregation acquired an abandoned Catholic church from Thomasville Landmarks. It was moved to this site on South Hansell Street in 1981 and soon thereafter restored. The first service was held here in 1982.

Jacqueline Kennedy attended services in this church at its original location on Jefferson Street while retreating in Thomasville after President Kennedy’s assassination.
