St. Thomas Episcopal Church is a historic church on Craven Street in Bath, North Carolina. The church building was constructed in 1734 and is the oldest surviving church building in North Carolina.

Thomas Bray, founder of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts in England, mailed books to St Thomas Parish, founding the first public library in the colony.
The church building was constructed in 1734. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

  • Super cool place if you like history. Oldest church in North Carolina. If history is not your thing, then this will probably be something to skip. No frills, no amusement rides, no food. Just a piece of history from the 1700's.
  • Beautiful church and the docent was very knowledgeable.
