These twin 136 year-old steeples rise menacingly above the front of this church along a side street just west of Broad St. It more resembles horrifying, boney appendages rising out of the grave more than an adorning piece of religious architecture.

Lots of these 18th century churches opted for elongated, white date stones on the front of their edifices instead of the traditional cornerstone. These stones often have more than one date. This church has an example of such a date stone.
