West Greevnville Branch Baptist Church
1858. 2019 Ten Rod Rd. (intersection of Ten Rod and Frosty Hollow rds.)

The West Exeter Baptist Church is standard Greek Revival, minus cupola. It edges into Victorian, however. The doors, for example, are flanked not by suggestions of substantial piers supporting entablatures, but by the typical Victorian device of more lightly framed openings surmounted by bracketed hoods (although the brackets here are tiny).
