John 20:18

Birmingham, Alabama

St. Mary's on-the-Highlands Episcopal Church was established on February 11, 1887 when Grover Cleveland was in his first term as President of the United States. Electric lights were still a novelty, but horse drawn street cars from downtown to the top of the hill created the first Birmingham suburb: the Town of Highlands.

The original buildings, along with other material things, have disappeared. Yet, St. Mary's on-the-Highlands Episcopal Church continues to grace the heart of the Five Points South neighborhood.
