Baptist Church, Blowing Rock, NC

April 27, 2017

Blowing Rock’s first modest Baptist church was a long time coming. Construction began in 1903 but wasn’t complete until three years later. I’m sure it was worth the wait.

Lurking behind that tree is a square clerestory. And we see two of its four stubby wings and a corner entry, which I’m going to attribute to Dallas architect C. W. Bulger, who promoted an economical prototype just like this for smaller communities with modest resources.

Looks like a cabin I once saw on Lake Sallie.
