I will post information on the history of this church when I can locate it.

Like other “Hardshell” churches in the region, the interior is as plain as the exterior.

The entrance gate (unique among these churches) is dedicated to the memory of James O., Sr., and N. Gertrude Jacobs Smith.

The cemetery is relatively small with burials dating to the early 20th century.

I don’t know if this once did service for the Waynesville community or if it’s just a salvaged truck; this one likely dates to the late 1950s and is in relatively good condition.
