Photographer's Note

St. Mark's Parish was organized on December 12, 1853, and is the oldest church in Palatka. Records show, however, that Episcopal services were conducted here as early as 1846. Construction on the building was begun in the Spring of 1854 and the first service held later that year. The Bronson House nearby was also built in 1854. Judge Isaac Bronson, along with 18 others, including Judge James Burt and William D. Moseley, first governor of Florida, made up the committee who decided to build this house of worship. Its Carpenter Gothic styling was used for many other churches in this area.
