According to an August 1, 1957 newspaper article, ground was to be broken on Sunday, August 4, 1957 for the St. Augustine Episcopal Church on North Washington Street (aka Old Lebanon Road) in Danville. The land for the church had been donated by Mr. and Mrs. Charles R. Eckler. The church was to cost $50,000. The church was actually completed in December 1957, with dedication ceremonies held on Sunday, December 22, 1957 (source: December 19, 1957 newspaper article).

NOTE: Today St. Augustine's remains at the same site - address 600 North Washington Street.
