Architectural note:
Designed by Richard Sharp Smith and built in 1914 the church was described in the year of her founding in 1914 as a Wayside Shrine in the Mountains of Western North Carolina,” beautiful little St. Mary’s Church has attracted countless visitors over the years.
Architectural note:
The church is English Gothic in style and cruciform in plan. Constructed out of red brick with steeply pitched gable roofs, the building is like those dotting the hilly landscape of County Durham, Northumberland and Cumbria in northern England. The English cottage-style Rectory, also designed by Smith, was built and set in beautiful landscaped grounds." http://go.ncsu.edu/grovepark
