St. Thomas' Lowland Church

The first Anglican Church in the Caribbean, and the oldest church on Nevis, St. Thomas' was built in 1643.

It is located on the main road about three miles north of Charlestown, and was built to serve the town of Jamestown, the island's original capital that disappeared. The church is perched high on a hill overlooking St. Kitts.

The church cemetery has many tombstones bearing names of Nevis' early settlers. They date back to1649 and there is a vault that holds the remains of John Huggins (1763-1821), the founder of Bath Hotel.
