Somerset Christian Church

Somerset, VA


An unusual example of a mid-19th century church, this diminutive building was erected ca. 1857 to serve a small community. With its bracketed cornice and porch echoing the Italianate mode, the church departs stylistically from the Greek Revival and Gothic architecture of most country churches of the period. The interior retains its original furnishings, including its pews, still decorated with painted wood graining.
