CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - The sanctuary of a 198-year-old Culpeper church has reopened almost a year after it was damaged by a magnitude 5.8-earthquake.
The Culpeper Star Exponent says the congregation at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church held a rededication ceremony for the sanctuary on Sunday.
The Aug. 23, 2011, earthquake caused about $500,000 total damage to the church, including the sanctuary's walls and stained glass windows.
St. Stephen's will celebrate its 200th anniversary in November 2014.
