Owner description: Mother church of the Serbian Orthodox Church in the United States. Features historic architecture.
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We were driving into Jackson and saw this white church on the hill surrounded by a graveyard and just had to visit since I'm a photographer. We were surprised to find it a Serbian church and graveyard. Almost every name ended in "vich" and there was even a placard that read "miner's graves" so I'm assuming they came over during the gold rush? It was built in the late 1800's and is beautifully situated on a hill near historic downtown. Definitely worth a visit but a bit of a climb up a steep hill on cement.

I live close by, and several times a year, they fire off some very loud guns, or small canons, late in the evening. It always surprises me, but doesn't bother us. I say party on!

It all started in 1995 when Belgrade iconographer was asked to paint frescoes and icons inside the church. Thirteen years later, 2008, he completed his job. Today, you don't need to go to Byzantine Europe to see this important religious and historical artwork.

We always enjoy stopping by here to see the beautiful church and to commemorate the Serbians who were part of the history of Jackson. Most people don't know the history and it's very interesting to see some of the older graves dating back to the 19th century with names of Serbs who were still born under the Austro-Hungarian empire, before WWI. Also, Serbian miners were very important to the time. If you have a hard time walking or climbing stairs, this may be a difficult place to visit.
