This little wooden church recalls the lumbering heyday of the nineteenth century. This is a charming vernacular interpretation of Gothic-inspired church design with board-and-batten siding, pointed-arched windows, and open bell tower that accents a small hill overlooking the Flint River. It is an archetypal example of the small bell-cote-type church recommended by Richard Upjohn for communities on the frontier.
