This is one of the most beautiful and well maintained churches, near where I live on the Black Land Prairie of Texas.
The ringing of the bell can be heard before each service begins.
The American version of the Queen Anne Style, was built in 1855-1856. If you will click HERE, you can read the very interesting history of the church.
To complete the Queen Anne Style, eyebrow windows were placed on the roof.
Exquisite Stained Glass Windows are original to the church.

Great details in this wonderful looking church.ReplyDelete
It is one of my favorite ones in the area where I live.Delete
What a beautiful structure. And those details are things you just don't see today in architecture.ReplyDelete
There was a lot of thought in building this church....and it is still original today.Delete
Looks gorgeous Meggie, especially those tiny little windows at the top.ReplyDelete

The inside of the church is just as lovely. Thanks, Beth.Delete
Exquisite indeed. What a wonderful historical church. Eyebrow windows, what detail.ReplyDelete
Amen to the sentiment on the sign.
What a treasure you're sharing today, Meggie. When opened your post I was surprised to see the timber frame, but your link explains why--good background. Always interested to see what Episcopal churches have on their cornerstones and signage. Always welcoming and inclusive messages--like that a lot.ReplyDelete
