Worshipers at one Ozarks church are singing praises as their spiritual center becomes an historic site.
The church was built in 1938 and features a rock masonry bell tower and 66 clouded windows. It was chosen as an historic site because of its exceptional preservation and community support.
"I've been a member all my life. My grandfather was a member, my father was a member, I'm a member, my son's a member, and my grandson's been coming with our new preacher. So, I guess, we're going five generations." says James Lee Squibb, a member of St. Luke’s congregation.
A county historic site designation serves as a gateway to the state and national registers.
