This was once a church. This was the Community Baptist Church in Waverly Place, built in 1890. It stood at the intersection of South Douglas and Elliott Avenues for more than 100 years. Tornadoes couldn't budge it. Storms couldn't rock it. All it took to bring it down was a better offer. And thus Nashville loses one of the last remaining structures designed by Hugh Cathcart Thompson, who also designed the Ryman Auditorium and 55 other landmarks. Of those, only eight still stand. It exists now only in the paintings of Peggy Snow, who stood diligently at an easel outside the church, racing to commit it to canvas before the walls fell. Let these photographs serve as an epitaph.
