Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

1806 Log Church


Located in PA west of Bedford not far from the turnpike.


We stopped here on our way to Pittsburgh in 2013.


The logs of the church were huge.



The graveyard was interesting.





The gravestones carved from locally quarried sandstone have weathered remarkably well.


This is a repeat post.  Original one was here.
Linking with Inspired Sunday.

that is a lovely wooden church and I love the carved head stones.

I supposed they just made use of local materials. Those gravestones look in pristine condition. No pollution there to dissolve the sandstone(.PS I love walking around London early in the morning on a Saturday or Sunday as it is so much quieter.)

it has more room than i would have thought - when you see it from the outside it looks so tiny. such amazing history. great find. ( :

That is a very unique church. I love the texture of the wood siding in one of your shots. I also agree with Beth on how much room is on the inside.

Yes it is quite deceiving from the outside. A very unique church.

oh, how sad, the tomb of that little bitty baby. Very interesting church. It's been there a long, long time, looks like it may be leaning a bit and I guess after all this time, it has that right.

Interesting that it's so tall. Great to see old stones that you can read. Tom The Backroads Traveller

I am surprised at how well the gravestones have weathered. I love to visit old cemeteries. There are so many stories there. The church is wonderful. Imagine the work that went into building it using those huge logs!

How remarkable is this place with everything still so usable and the gravestones still readable. Thanks for sharing this place.
