Long Description:

This church is kind of hidden away from the main drag (Broad Street) of a little side street. It is old and a little run down but the architecture is still picturesque and beautiful. In the front is, for lack of a better description, a huge gable whose surrounding cornice is chock full of relief work. All along the two spires, which looks like boney fingers extending toward the sky, are frieze art which cause it to have this reaper-like appearance. Much of the molding is also born of relief work and is quite apparent in the pictures.

No known website exists in support of this church nor was information available when I called
