Cross Roads, Grant County

This is about all there is Cross Roads, just south of Sheridan where 15 and 167 meet. Could the building on the right be the original church, abandoned when the one on the left was built? In any event, no signs or markers give so much as a clue. I would have inquired at the little grocery across the highway, but it was abandoned as well.

Bethlehem Baptist, Searcy

An entryway to a small inner-city church. You do see a lot of intermingling of blond brick with giraffe rock in this part of the state, in homes and churches alike. What's unusual here, though, is the jigsawing of the two techniques. Some mason really pulled out all the stops on this one.

Our Savior Lutheran, Monroe County

A simple off-center double chevron is enough to set this little church apart.

Cumberland Presbyterian, Searcy

Someone's been working on the bell tower of this 106 year old church.

Nice transom window.
