Long Description:

Williamsboro is more or less a simple crossroads these days. The main draw is nearby Kerr Lake. However, in earlier times, this was a busy place and supported this large Episcopal Church.

The church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is open from 2pm to 5pm on Sundays from May through September for visits. There is an interesting churchyard cemetery as this site as well.
