The celebrated Falcon Tabernacle is an octagon-shaped Pentecostal Holiness Church structure, and is also referred to as the Little Tabernacle or the Octagon Tabernacle. This historic building is located in Falcon, North Carolina and was constructed in 1898. A rare fact indicates that the church was predominantly built using trees that had been uprooted by a tornado. The use of eight-sided tents in ancient religious revivals is represented by the architecture of the building. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 11, 1983.
Visitors are allowed to walk on the fields where 80,000 Union and Confederate soldiers fought one of the last major battles of the Civil War at this historic site that also contains the Harper House, an improvised hospital where both sides were treated. A visitor center is also on site that contains exhibits and artifacts from the battlefields.
Located in Lillington, North Carolina, Summerville Presbyterian Church and Cemetery was first constructed in 1811. Being destroyed by lightning, it was rebuilt in 1848. The architectural design of the church makes it worth the visit. Added to the National Register of Historic Sites in 1985, this attraction should not be missed.
