Building: Longstreet Presbyterian Church (Fort Bragg, Hoke County, North Carolina)

Built:
Community:
Fort Bragg
State:
North Carolina
Zip:
28307
Provenance note:
Highland Scots Presbyterian congregation organized in 1758 was the first owner.
Historical note:
The church was named after the local portion of Yadkin Road, referred to in the period as the "Long Street". Two churches were built on the same parcel of land prior to the third, and current, structure. The building is considered to be among the most interesting and best preserved of the area's important collection of Scots Presbyterian country churches. The Army bought the land in 1923, and has been inactive ever since as a place of worship. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Architectural note:
Unlike the majority of Presbyterian churches in the state, the pulpit of the building is located against the front wall, with the galleries carried around the sanctuary.
