Port Gibson, New York is a little town in Ontario County that came to be in the building of the Erie Canal.  Ontario County wanted a port on the Erie Canal, so they were given this small section of land.  When driving Route 31 you are in Wayne County, a few miles in Ontario County, and then back in Wayne County.

Port Gibson United Methodist Church is the only church in Port Gibson.  The church is an historic church, built in 1871 and is an imposing example of Romanesque Revival style.The front facade features a square frame bell tower surrounded by a soaring slate clad octagonal spire.

It was listed on the Nation Register of Historic places in 1996.

The last picture shows the parsonage.  I don't know if the their Pastor lives there or they rent it.

Another beautiful church. Thanks for showing us.

I'm looking forward to the Easter recipes.

Hi Marilyn,
The transom windows over the doors are wonderful. Over the doors there appear to be blocked up windows with keystones. Maybe back in the day they had to cut back and eliminate stained glass windows.
I must stop by this one some day.

Have a wonderful week. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Good Morning Tom,

I think there are windows over the doors, it just was lousy weather that day and they don't show. The church is on Greg Street. It is a quaint little church.

Hope you have a wonderful week, too,
