Saint Marks Episcopal Church

 

Episcopal services in Palatka were first conducted in 1846 by the Rev. John F Young, later Bishop of Florida (1867-1885). The 

parish was organized in 1853, and the church completed in 1854. During the Civil War, St. Mark's was used as a barracks by 

Federal troops and suffered considerable damage. After the war the church served as the missionary center of the Episcopal 

Church in the St. Johns Valley. The original building, though altered, is still in use today.
