Wakefield Baptist Church

-A A +A
1852, Thomas A. Tefft. 1891, remodeling. 236 Main St.

The Wakefield Baptist Church was radically altered when the pulpit was shifted to the south side and the entrance to the north. But any building by the important nineteenth-century Rhode Island architect Thomas Tefft is worth recording.
