Church Photo in Lieu of Attendance - Rockville Presbyterian Church

Rockville Presbyterian Church, Rockville, SC   
This evening's addition to the Church Photo in Lieu of Attendance series (Wednesday evening service edition) is the beautiful and historic Rockville Presbyterian Church. Across the unpaved street in the little village is the Fellowship Hall.
Rockville Presbyterian Church - Built 1850. Simple Greek Revival structure on raised foundation. Facade has two entrances and a pedimented portico supported by two square columns. Steeple, destroyed in 1893 hurricane, was used as a look-out by Confederates in the War Between the States.

Why does it have two entrances?

I don't know the answer for this specific church but I do know in some churches the women sat on one side and the men another and they had two entrances for that reason. Come to think of it, we sat like that in the protestant church I went to in India.

The second shot is quite unlike churches I'm used to.

The top photo looks like a mausoleum.
