The General Assembly of North Carolina originally constituted St. Matthew’s Parish in 1752 as the established church in the County of Orange. The parish was reorganized in 1824, and the present church building was begun in 1825 and completed in 1826. It was consecrated by the Right Reverend John Stark Ravenscroft, the first Episcopal Bishop of North Carolina on May 21, 1826. As St. Matthew’s approaches the bicentennial celebrations of these events with a fresh reconsideration of its shared history with the Hillsborough community and a renewed commitment to future engagement, we invite visitors to find out more through a walking tour and picnic lunch!Subscribe to Triangle on the Cheap
