Vintage landscape: picket fence and carriage platform

“Fence style — Hebron Lutheran Church, State Routes 638 & 654, Madison, Madison Co., Virginia.” The photo — taken 1937 or 1941, photographer unknown — is part of an Historic American Building Survey (report written 1979), via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.

The church was constructed in 1740 by German settlers. The Madison area is between the cities of Culpepper and Charlottesville.

The church and at least one of its platforms (there were three) still exist, but the fence is gone.

I’m traveling for the next week or so, but I’ll be posting a “vintage landscape” from time to time. Thanks for your comments. I’ll try to answer everyone when I get home.
