St. Barnabas Episcopal Church is a former parish church in the Episcopal Diocese of Iowa. It is located in Montrose, Iowa, United States, on Chestnut Street, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building is now called St. Barnabas Wedding Chapel.

History[edit]

St. Barnabas Church was built in the Gothic Revival style in 1869 and was called Grace Church until 1881 when the name was changed. Local craftsmen built the church in blue-gray limestone. It served as a parish church until 1960 when it was closed. The Montrose Township Historical Society was formed in 1981 and began to restore the building. In addition to serving as a wedding chapel, the facility hosts annual Memorial Day and Christmas programs.[2]
