Wake Forest 27587 Magazine | Summer 2017 43 PHOTOGRAPHS BY PHILIP M. READ William Edward DeMille, Cecil B. DeMille's grandfather, was "one of the pillars of St. Peter's Episcopal Church," the filmmaker said in his autobiography. The grandfather is interred in the DeMille family plot, bottom right, on church grounds. A photo of the Hollywood legend, left, hangs on a church bulletin board. The original DeMille family home, shown below as a later tourist stop, burned during the Civil War but was rebuilt. "Fortunately, most of the house was saved," DeMille wrote in his autobiography, published in 1959. "It survived a second fire the same year and still stood there on the corner of Bridge and Second streets, a comfortable three-story brick with a wooden porch, until a few years ago when it gave way to progress in the form of a gas station."
