Day 9…Roswell Presbyterian Church

I finally had the time to finish this one!

Although the building itself was not built until 1840, the Roswell Presbyterian Church congregation actually began meeting in 1839 at Primrose Cottage, the home of Eliza King Hand, Roswell King’s daughter. They continued to worship at her home until the sanctuary was complete.

Nathaniel Pratt was called as their minister. He and his wife built the Gardens of Great Oaks, my painting from yesterday. It is located almost right across the street from the church.

Even though the church has expanded over the years, the historic building still remains and is quite lovely.
