The first Anglican Church in the Caribbean, and the oldest church on Nevis, St. Thomas’ was built in 1643. It is located on the main road about three miles north of Charlestown, and was built to serve the town of Jamestown, the island’s original capital that disappeared. The church is perched high on a hill overlooking St. Kitts.
The church cemetery has many tombstones bearing names of Nevis’ early settlers dating back to 1649. There is also a vault that holds the remains of John Huggins (1763-1821), the founder of Bath Hotel.
The island’s oldest church was built in 1643 and has been altered many times over the years. The gravestones in the old churchyard have stories to tell, and the church itself contains memorials to Nevis’s early settlers.
