The Little Rock Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit houses a beautiful stained glass window of Abraham Lincoln. The stained glass artist was A. Kay Herbert. Herbert designed three windows in the church-the other two depicting George Washington and Jesus with children, respectively. The cost of the window portraying Lincoln was  three thousand dollars at the time. The church, itself, was constructed in 1928. It’s architect was George Mason. The building is made of limestone. The church was registered as a National Historic Site in 1982. The window of Lincoln is magnificent. If you’re in the sanctuary facing the pulpit, the Lincoln window is on the left side above the second tier seating.
