Big Bone Methodist Church Building (Big Bone, Ky.)



Big Bone Methodist Church Building (Big Bone, Ky.)


Historic Status: National Register of Historic Places
One of the two churches located in the Big Bone region, the congregation was organized in 1887. The initial meeting was held in a barroom, with a building constructed soon after.
The church building is a simple, gable-front building with vernacular Gothic Revival and Queen Anne features. The front and side elevations feature two tiers of lancet-arched windows; the double-hung sashes have opaque central panels surrounded by small panes of colored glass. Over the main doorway is a gabled hood, and the gable-peak carries a starburst pattern bargeboard.
The church has been carefully preserved, and still stands on land now part of the state park. It was added to the National Register in 1989.
