Providence Methodist Church, 1856, Tarboro

Wes Cox, who’s now an industrial designer in Brooklyn, related a bit of the history of this church to me some time ago: ...The original Providence Church congregation met in a church on Old Post Road, several miles to the west. In 1856 the congregation moved to this new structure, which was damaged in a hurricane in 1922 I believe. The whole structure leans slightly to the right ever since the hurricane. The original church structure on Old Post Road was much older, and was used by other Methodist congregations until it burned, either in the 1920s or 1930s.

Wes’s grandmother was the church organist here for many years.
