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.
It almost looks like a house that was converted to a Church.
A little. I have never seen one quite like it.

And yes, it is very pretty!
That headstone…what does JNO. stand for, does anyone know? Oh! Google says it stands for John. Interesting. And weird because why not just spell out John since it’s only one more letter?
I think she was perplexed and sort of alarmed. Lol. Poor thing!
And that makes absolutely nonsense at all.
What a beautiful little church! I don’t believe I’ve ever seen one like it. Perfect for the setting. …
Yes! It is unique but well suited to its surroundings!
