Newport Presbyterian Church, Washington, Franklin County, Missouri, 1939, by the Piaget-van Ravenswaay Survey, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
The church was built in 1854. In the 1930s, Alexander and Paul Piaget and Charles von Ravenswaay made photographic surveys of early Missouri historic sites. In 1984, their work was donated to the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) collection of the Library of Congress.

Great image Cindy.
Thank you for sharing this historic photo. I forwarded this post to my dad, as I know he will enjoy it. He grew up in St. Louis in the 1950s and spent a lot of time exploring the countryside of the surrounding areas.
I hope he will enjoy it. Happily, the church is still standing.
