Total number of houses of worship: 34

That's about 2.3 houses of worship per mile.

Number named after the road: 1

Number named after Biblical events: 2 (Resurrection Baptist, Transfiguration Anglican/Episcopal)

That's the objective breakdown. Now, how about a very subjective poll?

Which one is your favorite and why? Tell me in the comments. I'll let you know the results -- and my thoughts -- next Sunday.
