Another very historic building on the campus of Mississippi College is Provine Chapel. This building was built between 1859 and 1860 for $25,000. Provine is constantly used today for concerts, organ recitals, weddings and numerous other events. Since it was built before the Civil War, General Grant used it to house his horses on the ground floor while the upper floor was used as a hospital. 14 of the original pews still remain in the chapel. Famed architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, declared it to be one of the finest pieces of Neo-Grecian architecture in the United States. The MC community and First Baptist Church of Clinton worshiped there until their church was built in 1992. The pipe organ is one that stands against any around. It is a beautiful building inside and out.
Thanks for the comments on my hibiscus yesterday. I know it's not easy to view photos right now.
"F Day" is 4 days away! Getting mine ready.
