Visiting this historic church was informative, with two current members giving brief talks. If you like church history this is a good place to visit.

We were there on a day/time they were supposedly open, but could not get inside. However we still got lovely photos of the outside and enjoyed walking around the cemetery trying to find the oldest gravestone.

Walking around the grounds and looking at the church was interesting. The head stones and grave yard are very interesting.
