Smithfield Tabernacle Exterior


A one-story addition was attached to the rear of this building at some point. All of the gothic-style windows in the chapel were removed and bricked in – I’m assuming this was done after the building was sold. Also, the steeple has been removed. Much of the brick detailing is still intact and is quite nice. If anyone has access to pictures of this building when it functioned as a church, I would be very interested to see them.
