St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, also known as St. Andrew's Church, in Prairieville, Alabama, is a small Carpenter Gothic-style church built in 1853 by the slaves of Henry Augustine Tayloe of Gallion, Alabama, who served as Secretary of the Alabama Diocesan Episcopal Convention. He was appointed to canvass the State to build up a Bishop's Fund. The exterior of the church features wooden buttresses. It appears to have been built from a design in the book Rural Architecture by architect Richard Upjohn.[3]

St. Andrew's was added to the National Register of Historic Places on November 7, 1973,[1] and was declared a National Historic Landmark on the same day.[3] Public access is allowed to this National Historic Landmark.[4] It is located 8 miles (13 km) east of Demopolis on U.S. Route 80.
