The Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah
The other day I was sitting in Chippewa Square. I glanced over at the tower that is located on top of the Independent Presbyterian Church and realized that for all of my time in Savannah, I had never taken a photograph of it. Well, I couldn’t let it stay that way for long. This beautiful, and quite historic church, on Bull Street, is very impressive. You can sit on a bench and watch tourists stop and stare at this structure all day long. The large columns in the front of the Independent Presbyterian Church are some of the most impressive columns you will see in Savannah!
The Independent Presbyterian Church, on Bull and Oglethorpe Streets in Savannah, dates back to 1818. The dedication of the church was quite a site. It was even attended by President James Monroe. In 1889 a large fire caused irreparable damage to the church and a new facade, the present facade, was installed for the church. The church’s pillars are quite distinct and stand out. The steeple of the church is quite impressive as well. Check out this photograph of the steeple at the Independent Presbyterian Church.
