A Modern Church Building and A Barn Next to New Homes.

First Church of the Nazarene

This church is one of several churches along Middle Road in Winchester, VA. They have a day care center.
Inspired Sunday

A little way south of Winchester is Stephens City. The old timber bank barn is part of LaGrange Farm, along the Valley Pike on the edge of town. When I visited the farm in 2016, the acreage to the right was farmland. It was sold a couple years ago and now new houses have been built there by a developer. 

The Barn Collective

It's sad to see the beautiful farmland eaten up by suburbia but at least the 18th century farm buildings were preserved.


  1. Hello,
    It is sad that the farm land is being sold off for more housing. It is happening here too. Take care, have a happy new week!

  2.'s nice that they saved the barn!

  3. Beautiful barn and scenic photo. Sometimes I wonder how humanity can co tinue eating if all the land is developed.

  4. Yes that's a good thing about the historical buildings. Happy to hear about it. I see a lot of development around here also.

  5. Good that they saved the barn.

    All the best Jan
