day of rest

In front of this building is a VADHR historic marker, O-48, which says:

St. Stephen's Parish
Formed in 1653 as Chickacone Parish and renamed Fairfield in 1664, the upper part was known locally as Bowtracy parish. When St. Stephen's Parish was formed in 1698, Fairfield became its lower part and Bowtracy its upper part.

Does St. Stephen's Parish refer to some vast colonial times county-equivalent? What is the name of the building with the cross on top? Building north of RT 360, Heathsville, Virginia, Northumberland County.
