This old church has been a constant in my life since childhood even though I’ve never been inside. It’s just always been there and it has been abandoned for as long as I can remember.
It’s another in a long line of old country churches and other historic structures that you see abandoned across communities everywhere. The churchyard is still mowed because there’s a cemetery too. If not for cemeteries, many old churches that have been abandoned by their congregants would be abandoned to nature as well.
Congregations age and die, human expectations and interests change, and time marches on. I suppose all these old, empty churches are just a sign of the times.
Still, it’s sad to see them falling in.
