Three Chopt District Historic Sites - Deep Run Baptist Church

Deep Run Baptist Church in Three Chopt District, Henrico County, Virginia.

Founded here in 1742, Deep Run Baptist Church was established as an Episcopal chapel. Modeled after St John's Church in Richmond, it was constructed in 1749 with wooden pegs and beams that remain part of the present structure. During the Revolutionary War, the church served as a hospital for wounded soldiers and the Marquis de Lafayette reportedly used it as a gathering place. In 1791, it became Hungry Baptist Church. In 1819, the name was changed to Deep Run Baptist. Since its beginning, the Church has continued to serve as a place of worship in this community.

  • Open for public services.
