Wardensville, November 2nd

Faith Mission Church in Wardensville dates to 1902. A modern brick addition can be seen behind it in this view.

When we were across the mountain early this month, I took many pictures including a few of the church and nearby . Mostly I took pictures of Warden Lake. I posted a trio of them that same day. Since it was a gorgeous autumn day, I want to share more of them now.

A plaque honors Loring (Booze) Orndorff, whose "loyal service was devoted to the public use and enjoyment of Warden Lake."

The lake has a new boat ramp. I mentioned to a fisherman that it looked nice and he opined that he would prefer that the money had been spent on improving the road. I hadn't found the road to be bad, but then I noticed on the way back to town that there are some sharp turns that might be tricky if you were towing a boat trailer.

  1. Interesting, because that little white church would not look out of place in a number of small rural towns in Australia - built at similar times I suppose.
