The History and Architecture of Lee County
North Carolina (1995)
The imposing brick church with corner entrance tower was modeled on a design published by Philadelphia church architects Benjamin D. and Max Charles Price; that firm also designed other churches in North Carolina, and an account of them is forthcoming. Boykin, a member of the congregation, was the contractor, and the workforce included carpenter Daniel White and brickmasons Daniel and Houston Goldston and the Hooker brothers. The congregation is among the oldest in Sanford, and its original church building is cited as the first built downtown.
