Reverend Will Mebane on Saint Barnabas
"Historically Saint Barnabas has been known as a community parish. By that I mean a place that was open to the community, to organizations, non-profits and the like [...] so today we do the same thing."
Reverend Will H. Mebane, Jr. recounts the origin story of one of the most striking buildings on Main Street. A parish established by the Beebe family, St. Barnabas is architecturally and historically distinct, and its campus is one of the essential sights of the entry into downtown Falmouth.
