Tabernacle Baptist Church

The picturesque appearance of this late Gothic Revival church stems from the combination of three square towers and two gable-roof blocks -- the result of six remodelings between 1881 and 1909. Raleigh architect James Matthew Kennedy, who designed the City Market and Murphey School, is primarily responsible for the church's present asymmetrical appearance.

Date: 1881-1909
