Oakboro Presbyterian Church
623 N. Main Street, Oakboro, NC


Built in 1915, the church was the first brick church in Oakboro. Decommissioned as a church in June, 2004, it became the property of the Oakboro Regional Historical Foundation through generous gifts from members of the E. O. Ross family. This family was instrumental in the early founding of the church. Over the years, the property has been maintained essentially as it was built with some alteration in the 50’s. The original pews and altar remain in the sanctuary. Plans are to mount an intensive fund-raising effort to preserve and restore the facility to as close to the original as possible.
