I went to the old James River town of Scottsdale today and saw this church. Scottsdale was a civil war town also, Battles took place here. I've never seen a front on a church like this one, built in 1865 right at the end of the war.

many churches of the day had split interiors. Women on left, men on right, with pulpit offset in front of men!! Thus the main door on the right. Many even had a curtain down the middle to minimize distractions!!!

I'm pretty sure it was always a church. smllpkg. As you can slightly see the sides had windows down them styled like alot of early Va. churches had-probably 4 down each side. It all seemed original looking at it from the parking lot.

I've never seen anything like it before, joyfulli, I'm interested in the design, myself. It was built right after the civil war--in Virginia, for what thats worth.

A VERY interesting church building. The three peaks in front are so unusual. I wonder what was behind this design? Thanks for posting it, warbler.

Never seen anything like this. A single width door instead of a double on a church? And on the side instead of in the center? Do you know if it was originally built as a church or did it have its beginnings as something else?
