This Salisbury Post file photo, published as a ‘Church of the Week’ feature on Nov. 22, 1986, shows Rector I. Mayo Little Jr. in front of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The oldest part of St. Luke’s was erected in 1828 and it represents the oldest church building in Salisbury. The actual St. Luke’s Parish was established in 1753 by an act of the Colonial Assembly to conform with the boundaries of Rowan County, then the largest county in the colony. The church is located at 131 W. Council St. Little, whose first name was Ichabod, was a popular rector at St. Luke’s and strong community servant who died in Salisbury Feb. 13, 2014, at the age of 85.
