Belinda Stewart loves old buildings and historic places


She has always enjoyed listening to stories of local history. And those stories and those buildings lead to her fascination with architecture.

Belinda Stewart of Belinda Stewart Architecture will share her love of old buildings and historic places in Webster County at the October JOY Club potluck luncheon set for 11:30 a.m. Oct. 31 in the First Baptist Church of Eupora fellowship hall.  After a few brief announcements, lunch will be served. There will be a brief devotion around noon, and then Stewart will share a powerpoint presentation about some of her favorite historic homes in the area.

Stewart said she is not sure which is the oldest building in Webster County, but there are several very early log cabins that are mostly in ruin, but still around. The oldest building still in use is the Shady Grove Presbyterian Church, originally built around 1820, with the current building constructed in the 1840’s or 1850’s. Continue reading
