NoD: Hopewell Presbyterian Church

Hopewell Presbyterian Church
Hopewell Presbyterian Church, Paris, Ky.
Hopewell Presbyterian is one of the oldest church congregations in Bourbon County first holding service in 1785 and being officially recognized by the Transylvania Presbytery in 1787. Fire twice caused the church to be rebuilt, most recently in 1904.

You might recall that Paris was originally charted as Hopewell; this church remains one of the few reminders of the community's original name. The church remains an active congregation with weekly services. Additional pictures are available on flickr.
