Fairview Baptist Church

On a high hilltop in the northeastern corner of Rutherford County sits this majestic American Gothic wooden church. It dates from the early 20th century. I love the way the white paint sets off the structure against that Robin’s Egg blue cloudless January sky.

  1. Love this……..such a dynamic contrast in sky and white of the church.  Thanks for posting, Patsy From: Living in The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina- A Blog To: pjcar119@yahoo.com Sent: Tuesday, January 27, 2015 7:37 PM Subject: [New post] Fairview Baptist Church #yiv7783123397 a:hover {color:red;}#yiv7783123397 a {text-decoration:none;color:#0088cc;}#yiv7783123397 a.yiv7783123397primaryactionlink:link, #yiv7783123397 a.yiv7783123397primaryactionlink:visited {background-color:#2585B2;color:#fff;}#yiv7783123397 a.yiv7783123397primaryactionlink:hover, #yiv7783123397 a.yiv7783123397primaryactionlink:active {background-color:#11729E;color:#fff;}#yiv7783123397 WordPress.com | Carolina Vann posted: “On a high hilltop in the northeastern corner of Rutherford County sits this majestic American Gothic wooden church.

  2. This is so Americana isn’t it? I know our area has hundred’s! Many are (United) Methodist on our side as Francis Asbury was very busy in this area as a circuit rider, starting churches and schools. Vann – have you noticed many quilt squares over your way? We have what is called a “quilt trail” and you can drive around the country side and see them displayed on bars. I have two small ones on our storage shed. I believe that the idea for a trail started in Ohio and probably has moved all across rural America. Beautiful pictures as always. Nancy

  3. What a perfect photo — from the clean contrast in colors to the precise angle at which you captured the architectural shadows. Thank you, Vann!
