Lecture at St. Thomas Chapel

Middletown, Virginia

Yesterday I attended a lecture on religion and anti-slavery movements. The location was the historic St. Thomas Chapel in Middletown. The church was completed in 1837.

Historian Deborah Lee and Ranger Shannon Moeck
The Shenandoah Valley Chapter of Coming to the Table hosted the program with support from the National Park Service and the St. Thomas Chapel Trust.

I've posted pictures of this church previously.


  1. Sounds like it would have been an interesting lecture.

  2. just went to a local National Park and found that it's only open 3 days a week because of the mess in Washington.

  3. How I'd loved to be there with you, I wonder what an interesting lecture you held, darling Linda, and in such a charming place surrounding you !

    Wishing you the best of weeks,
    with sincere thankfulness

    XOXO Dany

  5. Nice looking church. I bet the lecture was interesting.

    If you subscribe to my blog via e-mail for updates you may need to resign up as I recently switched e-mail addresses.

  6. A very distinctive looking church.

  7. Such a great place for a history lesson. Love this place :)
