Registered with the US Department of Interior, National Park Service, National Register of Historic Places.The Church of the Immaculate Conception is the southernmost building known to have been built to designs by Edwin Forrest Durang (1825-1911) who was the most prominent, prolific, and successful architect of Catholic churches and related facilities in Philadelphia for much of the second half of the nineteenth century. The church is architecturally significant for its association with Durang, its designer, as an unusually well-preserved example in a group of important Gothic-Revival-style frame churches erected in North Carolina, and as the only known nineteenth century Gothic-Revival-style frame Catholic church to survive in the state.
