  1. You know, this church is right down the street from us and I have photographed it on numerous occasions. Oddly, it does not appear on any of the historic “churches of Hillsborough” lists (as far as I can see), which usually means that it was an African American church. The irregular and clapboard character of it suggests hand-built, the same materials used to build all the mill cottages in West Hillsborough where the mill workers lived. It is directly across the street from the historic (now retired) Belleville Textile Mill, recently set aflame by some no-goodniks (see here: http://www.wral.com/large-fire-reported-in-hillsborough/15717543/), but fortunately mostly saved by various local volunteer fire departments. I have lived here since March of this year and I have never seen anyone coming in or out of the church, so I have to assume it’s no longer hosting services. It is a very soulful place and deserves to be maintained.
