Baptist Church at Cuba, AL (ca. 1877)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This church was built circa 1877 to replace a log building on this site.  The sanctuary is the original structure with its hand-hewn timbers that are twelve to fifteen inches wide.  It was originally divided by a partition, the height of the pews, separating the men and women who also used separate entrances.  A notable feature of the church is the decorative trim on the gables of the main structure.

The Cuba Baptist Church is featured site #31 in the Sumter County, Alabama Historical Points of Interest visitors brochure. This church is located in Cuba at the intersection of Second Street and Second Avenue (GPS coordinates 32.427286, -88.374114).
