Cottle Church Ruins

These ruins were once a small Chapel was known as St. Mark's of Ease. It was built in 1824 by Nevian President John Cattle as a place where both he, his family, and his slaves could worship together. Anyone else who wanted to attend could as well.

What to Expect

The ruins still stand, and today it is a popular place for tourist and couples being married.

While the walls are still up, these are ruins. The ceiling has caved in and the area is overgrown. Keep this in mind if you plan on visiting.
