Mount Sidney and Nearby

Mount Sidney is one of many historic towns along the old Valley Pike (now US 11). For those who aren't familiar with the Shenandoah Valley, the Valley Pike was once the "Great Wagon Road" and before that it was called the "Indian Road" because it was a well-worn path used by Native Americans for many years.

I was attracted to the bright red roofs of the Mt. Sidney United Methodist Church, a nice-looking building worth sharing with InSpired Sunday.
Old Town Hall, Now Owned by a Business
Not far from town I passed this fine barn decorated with a "barn quilt." I went back and took a picture for The Barn Collective.
