I've seen an abandoned church here in NJ. Great photo RW

Document it, el Patricko, before the suckers tear it down and try to tell us it's progress.

I hate to see churches in sad conditions like this one, but they seem to make better pictures for some reason. This one is particularly interesting, in my opinion. I have several in my collection as well.

Hi UpState, I agree with you. I think it's because the hopes and dreams of the people who built the church have somehow been betrayed. Yes, maybe future generations moved on to a better building, but this small church was where the dream was born and it's sad to see it decay. Thank you for your comment.

Now I thought that this was simply a new splinter sect, "Church of God, Abandoned." Are you sure it is not active? For the door is always open, as church doors always were when I was young!
