In many American towns and cities, old church buildings seem to be the stillpoint around which the entire community grew and changed. Sacred structures do fall victim, however, to the vagaries of time; over many decades, storms, floods, flames, and bulldozers all do their dirty work. Richard Cawthon's Lost Churches of Mississippi manages to salvage significant vestiges of these vanished architectural landmarks, collecting photos, postcards, and drawings of more than 100 Mississippi houses of worship. A fascinating meditation on Southern architectural history.
