The “Old Brick Church” or Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Mooresville, Alabama
Using handmade bricks, workers completed construction of the church building in 1839.
Over the years, Methodist and Baptist denominations have also worshipped in this building.
Regular worship services have not been held in the church since the 1960s. In 1994, the United Methodist Church held a deconsecration service and the town took ownership. These grist mill stones now rest along the front sidewalk of the church.
Stand on your tip-toes and peer through the third window (from left) to see the inside door.
As a unique wooden steeple, the hand pointing to heaven fell in the 1990s. A replica was installed in 2005.

“It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord;
So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.”
—2 Chronicles 5:13, 14 KJV
