    Wow, I might consider going to church if it could be in such a cool building. Love those triple hung windows and the single light fixture. It would make an excellent wedding/concert venue.

    Those are some uncomfortable looking seats. I hope the preacher was short-winded. I’ve never seen a curtain across what must be the balcony before–maybe to save on heating bills?

    A theatre (stage) somewhere might want those seats, if the buyer takes them out.

    This classic Greek Revival church building is much older than 1901. It was definitely built sometime in the mid-1800’s, 1840-1860. The form of the tower and the arrangement of columns and pilasters is a firm indicator of the building’s true age. The raised basement and the long triple sash windows add weight to the 1800’s date.
    The 1901 date may be the result of the building being moved to this site, or perhaps a new congregation, or simply carelessness in record keeping.
    I really like the idea of showing old movies and using the organ as sound for silents.
