Berryville Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1854; c. 1880 tower. 123 W. Main St.

The town's oldest surviving church is this one-story Greek Revival brick building. The pedimented gable front features a modillioned entablature and brick pilasters that are continued around the entire building. A bell tower with louvered vents rising above the center of the facade is a later addition. During the 1864 Battle of Berryville, the northwestern corner of the building suffered some damage. The Sunday school wing is a twentieth-century addition.
