The English Congregational Church in Big Rock is of the most unusual design. I can't say that I've seen anything like it in the northern Illinois countryside. The design includes two identical entrances, and yet memory does not recall the English separating the sexes during services. All this means I must call the church and ask for some history. In my book a question unanswered simply gnaws at your brain.

Those are some serious roof angles. It's a beautiful building.

Perhaps it was a smaller church and has been added to. Very unique roof lines.

PS: I have started "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" and so far it is holding my attention. Thanks again.

I love your pictures and prose. I grew up in Big Rock and in the early 70's, kindergarten was held in the building attached to the rear of the church. I wish I knew more about it's architectural heritage.
