During our travels through the mountains north of Asheville, we found ourselves driving through a small town called Pineola.
It was here that I caught a glimpse of an old church that caused me to scream that we had to stop. Haha. My poor friend was driving and had never experienced my irrational demands to stop and go back immediately.
Isn’t it pretty?
With wood shingle siding and stained glass windows, Pineola Presbyterian Church is one of the prettiest and most unique churches I have seen.
The hillside behind the church holds an older cemetery and there’s a shelter house with picnic tables where I imagine the church holds events.
Here’s another look from the cemetery.
There are churches everywhere you look in North Carolina. This one is tidy and so pleasant it’s tempting to go back for a service someday just to see inside.
