And this is the sister church to Lower Stone Church, Zion Lutheran Church near Rockwell, North Carolina. It is known locally as Organ Lutheran Church as there was a large pipe organ hand-built by one of the parishioners, that once was in the original church building (above).
The plan is the same as Lower Stone Church although it doesn't have the inscription over the door. The steeple to the right was added to the church in 1901 along with an attached granite building with a castellated roof line - typical to the early 20th century church buildings. Unfortunately the addition adds nothing (and detracts to a large extent) to the beautiful old church and so I didn't take any pictures of it.
Organ Lutheran Church is the oldest Lutheran church in the Piedmont area of North Carolina and is the mother church to five other congregations in Rowan County.
