In 1890, the Reverend Frederick Neve opened a church mission for the residents in the Ivy area.

He named the church St. John the Baptist, for the prophet who “came before” Christ and went into the wilderness to preach the Good News.  As one can imagine, over 100 years ago the church’s location was considered just such wilderness land in Albemarle County.  

This church mission “came before” the thirty some other mission churches he founded.

The name remains “St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church”
