Visitor Tips and News About Tiny Church
Old Barbourville Church is the Smallest Church in Knox County, being only 10'X12'. The Church is not actually as old as it would seem, as it was built in the mid-1970s, but is very tiny and holds only about a dozen people. The church can be used for weddings and events by applying at the Knox County Court House.
The beautiful little chapel sits next to the Barbourville Water Park, once a brick factory, with ponds left from the digging of the clay used in making the bricks..[Paul R. Mays, 01/01/2011]
