About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Please, No

Now you've loaded me up with an earworm that I typically don't get until Mother's Day and my memory takes me back to the church where Mom grew up out in the sticks. The whole congregation would lustily belt out "Church in the Wildwood" in every key imaginable. Thanks Dave!

Nope. It Didn't Burn

So you went to Google Maps (I know, most of you did) to see what the building looks like now and -- the question is, what happened -- Fire? A Developer? Because this building does not appear to exist, but a very attractive New England style church seems to have the name of this one.

Well, the answer is here:
