The Chapel of Our Saviour is located on Old Bath Road in Brunswick. In June of 1887, the Brunswick Telegraph reported: The little chapel on the Bath road, near the old Father Houston place, is rapidly approaching completion, and of course it will be a convenience for religious worship to people residing in the neighborhood. The "Father Houston" the article referred to was actually Francis Heuston (1764-1858), a prominent African American farmer who was well respected in the community. The Chapel was used for worship for gernerations and is still in use today.
