Buffalo Presbyterian Church
The Buffalo Presbyterian Church built in 1857, stands in the Buffalo Town Square Historical District located in the middle of the town of Buffalo, West Virginia. The church relatively unaltered over the years, has seen an immensely amount of history in its time. From the two front doors, one for men and one for women, and boxed pews dating back to the time of gender separation in church. To the enclosed slave gallery in the balcony for slaves to view the services. Walking through the doors takes a step back in time to the struggles of daily life, social interactions, slavery and the civil war history that remains imprinted in the walls of this Greek Revival structure.
