St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church in Columbia County, Pennsylvania was founded in 1793.
The original church was constructed of rough hewn pine logs in 1812. It burned in a fire on April 9, 1876. The congregation wasted no time in re-building their place or worship, and the cornerstone for the new church building was laid on May 23, 1876. The first service in the new building was held on Thanksgiving in 1876, and the building was consecrated May 1, 1877.
The church has lovely stained glass side windows which were given by descendants of the pioneer families who were members of the original congregation. The "St. Gabriel" window above the altar was consecrated in 1922.
Upon arriving at the site you will see a bell tower...

Waterfalls are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I have three galleries which feature my intimate waterfalls collection. If you like waterfalls, I believe you will really enjoy my waterfalls images. Many of my waterfalls images have been referred to as "National Geographic" quality!
I add artwork to my portfolio frequently, so please stop by often. All of my artwork is available for sale in a variety of formats. Just click on any image within the galleries for a larger view and sales information.
