Welsh immigrants settled Churchtown and Bangor Episcopal Church was named for a church in Wales. The original log church was built in 1720. A stone structure replaced it in 1754. In 1830, the current structure was built.
Bangor Episcopal Church is located at the northwest corner of Main Street (Rte. 23) and Water Street in the village of Churchtown. Constructed in 1830, the church is Gothic Revival in style.
Also located on the church grounds is an 1844 frame structure originally used as a school building, approximately 325 graves and markers dating from the Revolutionary War to present day, and a stone wall that runs along the property line.
The church building underwent repairs and improvements, including the addition of a steeple and art glass windows in 1880. The church, school building, graveyard and stone wall are in excellent condition.
