The Historic First Presbyterian Church of Highlands, North Carolina

First Presbyterian Church of Highlands, North Carolina

I like taking pictures of churches and courthouses, when I go traveling. They are some of the few things that all places in America have in common. I saw this wonderful church when I was in Highlands, North Carolina earlier this year. Here is some information about this church.  According to Wikipedia:

The First Presbyterian Church is a historic church at 471 Main Street in Highlands, North Carolina. The single story wood frame church was built in 1883-85, and occupies a prominent site in downtown Highlands, surrounded by a period picket fence. It is the oldest church in the city, and was built by Marion Wright, a local master builder. It is stylistically a vernacular interpretation of Italianate architecture, which is most prominent in its belfry tower, which features a flared roof with extended bracketed eaves. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
