Rocky Springs Presbyterian Church is nearly 140 years old, and sits on Boyds Creek Highway. The gorgeous white wooden walls pair well with the green roof. Although the congregation consists of 17-20 committed individuals, this church in the Smoky Mountains has been serving the Sevier County community for over 100 years.
The National Register of Historic Places doesn’t choose a church based on its worship value. Instead, the register looks at the historic value of the structure itself and determines whether the structure is worthy of preservation. Structures have to qualify in a specific category to meet the standards of the register.
In the case of Rocky Springs Presbyterian Church, it was accepted to the National Register for its unique architecture. At the time of construction, in 1891, most churches would have been built with the Gothic Revival style. What makes this church different is that it was built with the Queen Anne style and Gothic Revival styles in mind.
