Just West of Mt. Jackson

Otterbein Chapel is a charming Methodist church on Middle Road. This is in Shenandoah County, Virginia.

The nearby town of Mt. Jackson was once the terminus of a railroad and is now the location of an exit on I-81.

The farms shown below are within walking distance of the town.


  1. I do like the picture of the old barn - I wonder how long such buildings will remain as part of the landscape.
