These two photos are pictures of the Baptist Tabernacle, also known as the Ramseur Baptist Church in Paris, Texas.

This location was the last place in which J. Frank Norris and John R. Rice appeared in public together. The split was aired before a packed house in 1936.

I was there and was an eye-witness to the bitter exchanges, and on a later video will reveal the real inside story. (see video now up)
