THE YELLOW CHURCH ON KING STREET

HALIFAX NC: IMMACULATE CONCEPTION CHURCH: I snapped this a year ago and as I Googled for its address I learned that it was closed. Further, the Google map showed one front door had been removed and the sign was hanging by one hook. What happened?

 

The church was designed in the Late Gothic Revival Style by noted Philadelphia architect Edwin Forrest Durang and built in 1889. A family cemetery is part of the church grounds and is located well behind the sanctuary.

 

In 1997, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
