Grace-Calvary Episcopal Church in Clarkesville in Habersham County. The people of Grace-Calvary Church worship in the oldest church building in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. Built by Jarvis Van Buren, a relative of U.S. President Van Buren and consecrated on Oct. 10, 1842, the church is a beautiful example of Greek Revival architecture.

The building's historic features include over 42 multipaned windows that still retain most of the original hand blown glass, straight-backed box pews and a "double-decked" pulpit. The pipe organ is the oldest working church instrument in Georgia.
