"ornate"[edit]

"Ornate" doesn't actually help the reader visualize the pulpit. Apparently it is carved in some fashion.--Wetman (talk) 02:24, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for that comment. I agree that "ornate" isn't a good descriptor, but we can only report what the sources say -- we can't guess at what they mean. The word "ornate" came from a source, so I put it in quotation marks. This webpage (not cited in the article) states that the pulpit is enclosed. --Orlady (talk) 03:26, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
I found an image of the pulpit on Pinterest (not viable as a source) -- IMO, the pulpit looks elaborate (I wouldn't say "ornate" if I were describing it), but it's not carved. --Orlady (talk) 03:31, 16 January 2014 (UTC) After seeing that photo, I recognize the pulpit in the photo on the historical marker, which is the source that called it "ornate". --Orlady (talk) 03:34, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
