A 52-Week Photo Journey

Week 17. – #25. Places Of Worship


I love jumping in the car and driving back roads in the countryside. It’s the best way to capture beautiful scenery, charming houses and little “Places Of Worship.”  This photo is of the Chapel Hill United Methodist Church located on East Valley Road in Dunlap, Sequatchie County, Tennessee.  The first church on this site was erected in 1852. It was partially dismantled by Union troops during the summer of 1863 and the remaining structure was burned in late August of the same year. To one side of the church is a cemetery where many soldiers of both sides are buried in unmarked graves. In 1884 the main sanctuary was rebuilt with voluntary labor. In 1951 Sunday School rooms were added. (Blasted SUV was parked in front preventing me from getting a better composition!)

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
