Long Description:
Skåne's Fagerhult's new church
Drawings for the new church were made in 1897 by architect Adrian Crispin Peterson from Gothenburg and his son Carl Crispin. The church was inaugurated in 1900. The builders went in bankruptcy and construction work stopped for a period and became more expensive than
congregation planned.
Peterson (1835-1912) was educated at Chalmers and the Art Academy in Stockholm. He was an architect at the Office of the Superintendent and a practicing architect in Gothenburg.
Peterson has designed over 30 churches in the country, most of them in the Diocese of Gothenburg. Skåne's Fagerhult was until 1949 annex to Hishult, which belongs to the Diocese of Gothenburg. Also the church in Hishult is drawn by Adrian Peterson. During the 19th century, only JF Åbom drew more churches are Peterson. Also a lot of profane buildings like hospitals, schools, stations and residential buildings, mainly in Gothenburg, have Adrian Peterson as the author.

windows and the triumphal arch.
