Holm. Wooden church. (2010)
Russia

Деревянная, обшитая тесом, трехчастная, осевая приходская церковь, которая служила одновременно домовым храмом для Холмовской второклассной школы, выстроена на средства крестьянина С.И.Гудкова в духе допетровской архитектуры в псевдорусском стиле.

К невысокому односветному четверику храма с востока примыкает пятигранный алтарь, с запада небольшая трапезная. Стоявшая на кровле четверика главка сломана. Над большими прямоугольными окнами четверика помещены резные очелья сложной формы, над карнизом основного объема поставлены небольшие щипцы.
Единственный престол Александро-Невский. Внутреннее убранство не сохранилось.
Закрыт в 1930-х годов, долгие годы занят клубом.
В настоящее время восстанавливается.
