Notes:

St. John's Episcopal Church and Cemetery is located on the south shore of Long Island in the Hamlet of Oakdale, Town of Islip, Suffolk County. St. John's Episcopal Church is architecturally significant as a rare surviving example of mid-eighteenth century ecclesiastical architecture in Suffolk County. Built in 1765 and enlarged and remodeled c. 1843, the church retains its characteristic heavy timber frame, rectangular massing, central tower/narthex, wide wood shingle sheathing and minimal ornamentation. The building tradition was brought by settlers from Massachusetts and Connecticut with a largely English heritage and was generally characterized by small-scale utilitarian buildings with little ornamentation and the use of readily available materials. In addition, the church retains its original cemetery with approximately 100 graves dating from the late eighteenth to early twentieth centuries.
