Historic Vinton Presbyterian

What do you think? Is this a photograph of the first building? Is it close in design to the drawing?

Vinton Pres until 1912

This church building burnt in 1912. At that time, it was the largest fire the town had seen.

Current building with dome

This is the original look of our current building. You can see it includes a dome which has been removed. A congregation member told me the copper from the dome was donated to the war effort during WWII.
