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
