The 12 Oldest Churches In Arizona Have Stood The Test Of Time
Arizona is a fairly young state and for that reason, historic architecture both limited and young. Today, we’re going to take a look at some of the oldest churches standing in Arizona. Some predate the United States but most were constructed when settlers began moving into Arizona Territory in the 1880s.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
