Lodges Corner UMC, Arkansas County

My brother and I passed this church over a dozen times in the past two weeks driving from Stuttgart to DeWitt and back again. It's typical of a style of churches built to face two highways. We could find no date of construction, but Jim guesses the 1940's.

1st Baptist, Batesville

established in 1847
built in 1881

Some fine rock work here.

The straight lines and the subtle curves
of this church are well balanced.

Southside United Methodist, Batesville

Spent a day at this church last week repairing their four stained glass windows. I enjoyed talking with Dr. Jim Pierce, the part time pastor there.
