Waveland Presbyterian Church

As of today in 2021, this church has ceased.  However there is a preschool using the annex building which does not show in the picture.  It is located to the west, right of church building.

Here is an earlier photo before the front steps were added.  Also shown is the parsonage to the east or left.  Thanks to Jeff S.
