St. Augustine Episcopal, Fort Smith

There is no sign, no cornerstone, and apparently no congregation for this little corner church. (Photo by Jim King)

(Thanks to the anonymous commenter who straightened me out.)

Holly Grove Presbyterian, Monroe County

This church turns 130 years old next year.

It's on the National Historic Register.

The windows show a fine mix of green, amber and blue opalescents, cut randomly. I'm sure they're beautiful from the inside, but they look great in reflected light as well.

St. Andrew's Episcopal, Marianna

Looks like Mission Revival style to me, which may or may not date it to the early part of the last century. How's that for definitive?

A pretty church compound with a kind of European feel.

BTW; yes, the main entry door is red.

St. Paul's Episcopal, Batesville

There has been an Episcopal church at this site since 1866, although I'm not sure when this particular church was constructed.

As is the custom with Episcopal churches, the front door is painted red. I found this interesting blog entry that attempts to explain why this is so.
