Beaver Creek Church of the Brethren

Since some of my ancestors are buried in the cemetery of this church in Maryland, we stopped by after visiting the quilt show at the nearby mill.

 The first photo is slightly altered in Photoshop. I wanted a view that represented what this church used to look like so I cropped off the large addition, changed the picture to black and white, and then applied some filters to bring back the contrast.


  1. Is that curtains in the windows? I don't think I've ever seen a church window with curtains.

  2. Pretty church and images! Have a happy day!

  3. Some of the early churches in the valley were stone like that. They were kind of a fort like structure in case of attack.

  4. the backwards s is a unique symbol i've not seen used before on a church.

  5. I love what you did with it! The architecture also seems unique, what a lovely place.

  6. I like how you changed it with the photo editing. Neat pictures.
