Country Churches

About This Group

The church was the social center of rural America. I have always loved to visit those old churches and to try to ponder what the lives of those early pioneers might have been like.

Please submit your photographs and artwrork of the old country and rural churches across America and around the world. All media will be considered for inclusion, but only rural country churches. No big churches and absolutely NO CATHEDRALS.

New this year I\\\'m including meeting houses which I know in New England did double duty as both the church and the town officials would also conduct business there and other meetings as needed. This may be strictly a New England thing but if you think your meeting house qualifies then I want to see in the description the name and location and if possible a wikki link that describes the functions of this meeting house.

I recognize that there are very often small churches within some of the larger cities. I will accept such churches into the group if in my judgement they meet the criteria.

continuing rule Please include a description I reserve the right to reject any artwork that does not include a description telling where the church is located and preferably a history of the church.

Please NO MORE THAN TWO PER DAY. This will not only make if easier for me, but it will prevent blocks of images from one artist from accumulating.
