To Pittsburgh, PA - Part 1

We spent last weekend at my brother's home in Pittsburgh.  We saw some interesting things so this is Part 1:  1806 Old Log Church.
As it's name implies this church was built early in the 19th century. The church was improved slowly, wooden floor, heat, pews, pulpit, etc, and was used continuously for worship only until 1852.  It's surrounded by a cemetery which is still in use.

Some huge logs were used to build this church.

Notice the pulpit.  It's shaped like a wine glass.

There are at least 155 grave stones carved from sandstone quarried locally.  They are works of art.

If you want to visit this spot it's located 11 miles west of Bedford, PA on Route 30, Lincoln Highway, just west of Schellsburg, PA.  Route 30 runs parallel to the PA Turnpike.
