All Saints Episcopal Church is an historic Carpenter Gothic Episcopal church located at Hall and Harrison streets, in DeQuincy, Louisiana in the United States. On September 20, 1983, All Saints was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

History[edit]

The church was built in 1885 for Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Patterson, which is over 160 miles east of DeQuincy. Holy Trinity closed when its membership dwindled and it stood unused for several years. In 1942 it was bought by All Saints which had it dismantled and taken to DeQuincy, where it was slowly reassembled. It was reconsecrated by a bishop in 1946 as All Saints Episcopal Church.
