West Market St. UMC– Part Two

West Market St. UMC, like many churches built near the end of the 19th century has an interesting, rather Victorian structure, as you will now see. The outside has both a bell tower, and and a rounded portion to the right of the front entrance.

What makes this sanctuary distinctive is that it has an antechamber to the left of the sanctuary that can either be included in, or excluded from the sanctuary. There is a descending partition that allows the latter.

Here’s one more shot of the exterior from a different angle. The red clay of the Piedmont led to the creation of various brick factories, particularly in Greensboro in the late 19th century. I’m willing to wager that the bricks used to build this church were very local indeed.
