Long Description:
The Christ Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1854 The first Episcopal service was held in Belvidere.

By September 29, 1860 the church was completed and consecrated by Bishop DeLacy and the first service was held. The total cost of the construction of the church was less than $2000.
