Architecture in the 18th and 19th centuries was no where more prevalent than in our churches. Huge bell and clock towers prevailed. Tall spires topped with a cross, jutted up to the Heavens, proclaiming our dedication to God. Many were modeled after castles with their turrets and ramparts. Architects, given free reign by the congregations, designed wondrous testimonies to mans love for God, and the builders, masons, carpenters etc, tried to out due each other.
