Beauty in the Grove

Vanessa sent this photo of this beautiful Church for all to view:
Little Grove United Methodist Church
Frisco, NC (Hatteras Island)
Originally called Trent Methodist, the building was destroyed in the 1933 hurricane.
This building was built in 1939 and dedicated in July 1940---it is still going strong.

Thanks Vanessa

This is Avon Methodist Church. Originally built in the late 1880s and it has been in continual use ever since. It is a beautiful church and that is my car right beside it. It is on Avon-Allen rd. In the late 1800s when all these little towns were founded they each had their own church although they were just a few miles apart. well until the whole area was diked and drained travel specially in the winter was by canoe or you would just get stuck in the mud.

Downtown Everett, WA

Calvary Lutheran in Everett, Wa. It is on the same St. that the other two churches are on. In fact I think they are only blocks apart. All three churches were built around the same time.

First Presbyterian of Everett. An odd angle. You can see the older part with the spire and the newer closer. Also downtown Everett.

Central Lutheran church in Everett, WA. Pop. 95,000. This church dates back to early Everett pre 1900,and has been in continuous use. It is right downtown. You can see it has been added onto over the years.
