A 19th Century Jewel in Bartlett

Lana Sue Hill, my Bartlett, Texas folk artist friend, suggested recently that if I like old churches, to take a look at a couple just down the street from her.   One that I found to be quite interesting is Bartlett First Presbyterian Church.   I have no idea how long it’s been since the sermons have stopped there, but it’s quite lovely.   According to a historical marker, the church was built in 1899.  The congregation formed in the mid-1870s as the Nazareth Church of the Central Texas Presbytery.    When taking photos, I asked a neighbor about the church.  He thinks it’s owned by someone living in New York.   I hope he/she finds a way to keep the building alive.  It seems to have good bones.
