Covenant Reformed Episcopal Church
The Covenant Church is across the street from the historic Starkey School, and “Covenant Reformed Episcopal Church is located in the Cave Spring area of southwest Roanoke County.”  Covenant Church is part of a founding jurisdiction of the Anglican Church in North America The current church building was built between 1924-1926, and is a plain wooden church on a stone foundation in the austere Protestant style. There are few permanent decorations in the church, and no stained glass windows. The brass Candelabra and other fixtures are in the Colonial Williamsburg style. Also located on the property is a rectory built in 1929. An earlier Reformed Episcopal Church, Providence Reformed Episcopal Church, transferred all care of property and title to the daughter Covenant Church on March 1, 1984.
