St. John´s Episcopal Church Parish was founded in 1890 by Bishop William Crane Gray, but the church was not built until 1897.

The design of the church is copied from one in Como, Canada, where the Hodgson Family formerly lived. The Hodgsons became one of the first families of St. John´s.

The beams of the church are shaped in the form of an inverted ark, the symbol of salvation.
