BARTHOLOMEW'S CHURCH DESIGNATED HISTORIC LANDMARK St. Bartholomew's Church, at Leetown, has been listed as a Jefferson County Historic Landmark. It was built about 1845 by the Rev. Lewis P. Balch, D. D. on land given by him and adjoining his family home, The Cottage. Funds were donated by members of St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church in New York City of which he was rector at the time. It is a good example of the ar- chitecture of that era - Net-Gothic with board-and-batten siding. On the grounds is an outdoor shrine dedicated in 1938 by another clerical nighbor, the late Bishop Robt. E. L. Strider, of Rose Hill. The dedication was to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. I. H. Strider. A strenuous effort to preserve and use the structure is being made by neighbors and families associated with it. SUMMIT POINT SOUTHERN BAPTIST CHURCH SERVICES Richard G.
