Rivermont Baptist Church, Lynchburg, VA

July 30, 2017

Long before Jerry Falwell was a gleam in Lynchburg’s eye, there was the handsome Rivermont Baptist Church, completed in 1911, though begun as early as 1905. Architects were the local firm of McLaughlin, Pettit & Johnson, Lynchburg, Virginia, with the junior partner Mr Johnson receiving design credit. Is it my imagination or is that a hint of radial Sunday school barely showing on the far right?

This is the second view I found, the other a later view showing a 1923 addition on Bedford Avenue.
