As others have posted this church was closed when we walked up to it. However, it was worth the few blocks walk from the Central Park just to see the simplicity of the architecture. It was actually very humbling. The church must be very beloved...More

We drove into town to see the church but it was closed as another reviewer had posted. It was situated next to a plain plaza/playground. I checked every wooden door but they were all locked. There were some workers on the right of the church...More

Beautiful 100+ year old colonial style church. Thankfully, Liberia has gotten a preservation society in place now to protect gems like this. Currently being renovated so I am hopeful it will be more beautiful than ever soon!

Small, old Colonial Style Church. The outside was painted nice and that is all I can say about it because it was closed...

A pretty little church but it seems closed for good. If you're expecting, as some of the guides say, Liberia to be full of Colonial marvels, you may be disappointed.
