PLACES OF INTEREST St. Peter’s Church Located in the center of St. George, this is the oldest Anglican church in the Western Hemisphere that has been in constant use since its construction in 1612. A walk throughout the church and its grounds will delight history buffs. Its historic graveyard is separated into two sections - one was used for slaves and the other for whites - pause to read the headstones. After the church’s Bermuda cedar structure was destroyed by a hurricane in 1713, it was rebuilt in stone. With its long varied history, it is certainly a nice place to visit.
