While churches like this were once common among Primitive Baptists, they are quite unusual today. Even most so-called Hardshell Primitive Baptists have traded such humble gathering places for more modern construction and convenience. Though Wayfair appears to be from another century, I believe it dates to the 1930s; 1934 is the earliest burial recorded in the adjacent cemetery. Amy Hedrick surveyed and documented the cemetery in 2005.
Thanks to Leon Gordon for bringing this great place to my attention.
Note the off-center placement of the side doors.
The roof boards and beams are exposed with no further protection from the elements.
The pulpit is strangely located on the side center of the church. The thin boards hanging from the ceiling on the right are used as a coat and hat rack.
Each window is shuttered in this fashion. Note the rough-hewn boards.
There’s obviously no indoor plumbing, hence this unusual double privy
