First Methodist Church Sanctuary, Searcy, c1900. The sanctuary is decorated for a wedding. Note the intertwined hearts and the two doves. A close examination of the decoration above the central arch discloses the letters D and M. One can only imagine their significance. There is an electric chandelier at the top center (just below the highest art-glass circle). The picture was made subsequent to 1905 because that is the year in which the first electric plant was installed in Searcy.
