Elizabeth Hart Colt, widow of Samuel Colt, the famous gun manufacturer, commissioned the first Episcopalian Church in Punta Gorda after the death of her beloved son Caldwell Colt. Albert Gilchrist, who went on to become a governor of Florida, donated this land for the church. The church was moved to its current location in 1980.
