Liberty Baptist Church

-A A +A
1916. Church St. at Lee Grant Ave.

This church built for a congregation formed in 1834 is anchored by three massive square towers. Its corner location gives the church two gable-fronted facades, which have large Tudor-arched stained glass windows. The towers are pierced by tall and narrow louvered openings and with their crenellated tops convey a powerful impression. This red brick church with contrasting white trim is the largest church in the county. The church's support buildings extend along Church Street in a compatible style.
