Winchester, July 3rd

We went to Winchester this afternoon for their Rockin' Independence Eve celebration. We parked near this church on Boscawen Street so I thought I'd share it with you.

This Lutheran Church dates to 1842. Over the years they purchased additional buildings for their ministry.


I couldn't get the steeple in the frame so here's another shot showing the steeple towering over some neighboring buildings.

A light rain was falling but we decided to check out the festival anyway. It was taking place on the downtown pedestrian mall. The rest of today's pictures are from the celebration.

  1. If it was not for the Spire you would think it was a house along the street. Hoppy 4th of July
