A Virginia Historical Landmark, the Christ Church was organized on October 31, 1890.  The building was designed by T. Buckler Chequior, a Baltimore architect.   The church was originally painted red, due to the fact that Mr. J. K. Taggart, an early settler of Big Stone Gap, had extra paint left from painting his barn.  It is still a tradition today for the Taggart family to give the red paint.  The altar of the church is a relic from the mid-nineteenth century Episcopal Church is Rustburg, Virginia.
