North River Community Church

IMG_8323

I don’t know how old the church is that houses this dome-shaped steeple with its arched portals and peeling paint (and questionable status as candidate for a new facelift anytime soon). But I can tell you that the cemetery adjacent to the North River Community Church, a fun discovery one early evening as we were driving along isolated country roads, was dotted with many old tombstones with birth dates and death dates in the late 1700’s and mid to late 1800’s, respectively.

It was unclear as to whether the church is still in use. We may have to check it out some Sunday morning to observe the comings and goings to this grand old specimen, situated on a beautiful winding gravel road with corn fields stretching out as far as the eye can see.

An oldie but a goodie!
