Save the Emmanuel
The Gold Discovery Park Association is spearheading a fundraising effort to raise money to restore the Emmanuel Church.
The historic Emmanuel Church located in Marshall Gold Discovery SHP is in dire need of restoration. It was built in 1855 and is the first Episcopal Church built in California.
This Church has been closed to visitors and weddings since 2015 because of dangerous building conditions. At that time, a building assessment placed the restoration cost at $2.3 million.
On November 30, 2018, one of the spires on the bell tower of the church was ripped off during a storm.
