Old Brick Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1837. Old Nottoway Rd. at Old Brick Ln.

Presbyterians and Episcopalians were the denominations most likely to favor the early phase of Gothic Revival as used here. Characterized by pointed-arched openings, the emerging style had not yet broken away from the traditional classical gable-end rectangular structure of earlier decades. Also indicative of this is the pediment with broken ends over the central entrance.
