First Presbyterian Church, Guntersville
After the first building was abandoned, burned and covered with Guntersville Lake, the cornerstone of the current Presbyterian Church is a descendant of Cherokee Mission School. The architecture, Classical Revival, is based closely to a 16th century design of architect Andrea Palladio.
The church is part of the North Alabama Hallelujah Trail of Sacred Places, a driving tour of 32 churches that are at least 100 years old, stand on their original sites, still hold services and are accessible to the public. For more information, visit www.northalabama.org/trails/hallelujah.
