All Saints Chapel of the Church of the Good Shepherd is a historic Episcopal chapel in southeastern Raleigh, North Carolina, United States of America that is part of the Episcopal Free Church of the Good Shepherd. The church branched off of Christ Episcopal Church.[2] The recent move of the church was featured in the News & Observer.

History[edit]

In the middle of the 19th century, there was only one Episcopal church in Raleigh, North Carolina. A disagreement between certain church members led to a desire for a split of the church. In 1873, the Reverend Edward R. Rich of St. Paul's Church in Clinton, North Carolina suggested that a new Episcopal Church in Raleigh be started. On December 19, 1873, The Reverend R.S. Mason, the rector of Christ Episcopal Church parish, gave consent for a new Episcopal church to be started in Raleigh. In 1874, a piece of land was bought on the corner of McDowell and Hillsborough Street. There the All Saints Chapel was built in 1875, as an addition to the already existing Church of the Good Shepherd. During the beginning of the 20th century the chapel moved from its original place to Morgan Street. In 2006, the church was moved again. The church is currently located right outside Historic Oakwood.[3][4][5]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.[1]
