St. Luke's Exterior


Yesterday, I showed you the interior of St. Luke's Episcopal Church. Now, here's the exterior.

Almost complete, the church is under reconstruction at Cahawba Archaeological Park near Selma. The 156-year-old structure was moved from the town of Cahaba in 1880 and was returned piece by piece a few years ago. Soon, park visitors will be able to tour this architectural masterpiece.


Thanks to guest photographer Christine Weerts.

Historical societies do such wonderful service for communities! The restoration looks fabulous.

Oh my, it's gorgeous! I love wood but I've never seen a church completely made of wood.

It's beautiful and reminds me of the little Episcopal Church I attended when I was a child. I'm so glad it's being restored!
