Redpath Memorial Presbyterian Church


We came across this church in 2008.


I think it is one of the most beautiful churches I have seen.


I don't know why I had never thought to google it, but I had not until tonight:

The Redpath Memorial Presbyterian Church in Cross Village. The Church was organized in February, 1888 and dedicated in 1890. It was destroyed by fire in 1918, to be rebuilt in 1921, through the efforts of The Rev. John Redpath, for whom the church is named. For many years the church stood empty and unused. Through the efforts of two young couples the church reopened in 1965 for summer worship.

  The above was from a facebook page for it seen HERE.  And there is a great photo of it there.


I would love to have been able to see inside...

With these views, I am linking to Tuesday's Treasures.

It is GORGEOUS!!! It looks old, yet new. And your research explains why. I agree, I think it is my favorite church ever.

I was about to ask why Redpath and then I got to why it is named that. it is beautiful I love the front of it, it would be a great church to turn into a residence. I am glad they restored it and now use it some.

...Rose, I've seen one church like this up in the mountains, thisone is gorgeous. Building this was a labor of love. Thank goodness for the folks who saved this one and thanks for sharing.

Lovely church. I am a Presbyterian, and I love the simplicity of the old church from my childhood. Although it was in Ireland we used to have the Stars and Stripes in honour of how many of our congregation had gone to make a better life for themselves in the USA.
