First Presbyterian Church - Now and Then

 
*****
Located at 1100 1st Avenue. Built in 1862 and added to the historic register in 1980. My picture was taken from 2nd Avenue looking west. The postcard is the front of the building looking east. 
Looking for something fun to do on Monday nights. Free line and ballroom dance lessons start at 6:00 EST.

It was quite grand in the old days.

Interesting. I like "then and now" photos (probably for the same reason I like "before and after" photos) I sort of like the church now in white. Very Mayberry RFD

A beautiful, beautiful church. Has it been whitewashed?

Love now and then shots. If it weren't for power lines, the photos would look a lot more alike.

Now and then would be a fun theme for city daily photo. I guess "then" is not always east to come by.

I always enjoy "then and now" shots. It really hasn't changed a lot over the years, and is a very beautiful structure.
