Church Ruins

Posted by

What is left of Saint John's Episcopal Church in Harper's Ferry, WV. It was destroyed during the Civil War. It was rebuilt but eventually abandoned for a new church.

@grouser: Yes, it is the new church. I guess I should have mentioned that. It is down the hill below the remains of this one.
