St. Paul's Heritage Center

Today I went to a talk in Edinburg that was sponsored by Friends of the North Fork. Anne Henriksen, PhD,  discussed endocrine disrupters and how they effect fish in the North Fork of the Shenandoah. Researchers have identified 39 chemicals in the river that disrupt hormones and interfere with fish reproduction.

The location was St. Paul's Heritage Center, which was originally St. Paul's Evangelical German Reformed Church.

Although the church existed before the American Civil War, a plaque indicates that the current building dates to 1911.

  1. Hate to hear our wastes in the water. Farm chemicals can be a problem, even showing up in the rain.

  2. A lecture worth taking seriously, especially now. That is a good use of the building.

  3. Love those little churches. There was an almost identical stained glass window in a church I went to when i was growing up. lovely! Thank you for stopping by my blog and hope you have an amazing week!

  4. What a neat place/old church building to visit for a meeting....

    We humans do so much damage to critters including our fish and birds.... We just got back from a trip to Indiana --and saw tons of those wind turbines.... Makes me sick since they kill birds.... Grrrrr...


  5. Wow, I love the stained glass windows. They are so beautiful.

  6. I agree with Connie those stained glass windows are beautiful.

    All the best Jan

  7. That is a nice old church, love the stained glass
