Churches of the U.S.

I didn't see a thread dedicated to church architecture of the US. So, I'm making this one. I'm currently making a book on churches of the Pittsburgh mega region and am almost done with said book. Any hopefully many people contribute their photos or others to the architectural legacy that is quickly disappearing in America due to historic church closures. All the photos I'll be posting are mine that I've taken personally. I've photographed nearly 2000 churches in the US, mostly in the rust belt, but also Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas as I grew up in those states and go back regularly to visit family.

I'll start with some photos I took last weekend in Buffalo, NY.

The oldest church in America with active archaeology going on, the Jamestown 1639 church, although the current church, other than the tower; which is original was built in 1907. However, the bricks in the floor while I was there in 2018 are from the original 1639 church.
