Another Newtown Church

This is one of the many old churches in Newtown. It's Presbyterian and sits elevated on a residential corner. One of it's stones says "Founded in 1734" while another simply says "1933".

It looks almost like a country school house to me. It just looks peaceful. And very very old :)

Very pretty! I love the stonework. I'll bet the inside is gorgeous too.

That's the trouble with Presbyterians - they elevate themselves above everyone else... ;-))

This is an oldie but goodie, for sure. Love the stone which is one reason I loved living in Pennsylvania - so many old stone houses and barns...

Very nice shot, James!

The stone work is so amazing. There are many buildings here (Harbor Springs) that incorporate stone work into the foundation and more.

Great preserved Heritage church building. And I agree with Arija.

For me, this style of architecture and building is very very American. We dont have anything resembling that here in Australia. And it is very different from churches in the UK as well.

The lines are very clean and to some extent prim and proper. The way you have photographed it, James, helps to reflect its use.

Good one ...

Whether or not Gods exist, I love exteriors ant interiors of churches. All over the world it's a place where we can rest for overcoming fatigue and win back our own thauhts.
Have a wonderful day, James!
