Farmington Hill Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1851. Farmington Hill Rd., Farmington Hill, 10 miles southeast of Osceola

Isolated on a large open lot on the edge of a rural crossroads community, this vernacular Greek Revival church and its environs are survivors from the county's agricultural past. The clapboarded white frame gable-roofed church is the picture of simplicity, so simple that its rear facade is blank. Elongated shuttered windows flank the tower that rises from the unadorned front to a second stage, which is essentially a box outlined by Doric pilasters. The tower probably had a spire or cupola at one time. A Greek Revival entrance is framed with plain Doric pilasters and an entablature.
