Look what I found, the oldest Pres. Church

Thyatira Presbyterian Church in Salisbury, the capital of the backcountry still on its mission and invites tourists as well.  Gosh, it would be like when I saw the bones of Capuchin monks in Rome

Churches were pivotable to the episodes of the Southern Campaign. I just found this one in Rowan county so I want to list it before I forget it.

Speaking of churches, tomorrow I'm going to see an exhibition by Ben Long of drawings for his latest fresco for a church. The exhibit will be in Linville Galleries near Grandfather Mountain.He has frescoes in churches and in secular exhibits as well across the world now. The Blue Ridge Heritage area has funded a brochure to escort you around the mountains to see them all.  I, of course, want one in Elkin about ...guess what???  1780. well yes.  It would be National Art.  

Benjamin Long is a certified living master. Did I already tell you about him? 

Well I'll be a star-struck fan.
