Abandoned "Oaky Grove" church near me. Last used in 1949. Found some info about it (don't know how accurate the info is) Walnut Hill Historic District (Knightdale, North Carolina) - Wikipedia

Nice shot. Thanks for the history. I see a lot of moiré in the pic as it appears here but not in the flickr shot. It must be something to do with the resizing.

Most interesting photo. Could those who put the effort into building it, ever have imagined it being abandoned like this?

Thanks! I try to put some information on my photo's so that people can dig a little deeper if they are interested. I'm not sure on the moire' as I don't see it on my end but I bet you are correct about the resizing.

I'm sure it took a lot of work and time to build, especially for when it was built. I hope it survives. There is some talk that the elderly lady who owns it, plans on donating to the state so it can be saved, but you never know.

Thanks for the kind comments.

Very nice photo. Unfortunately there are a lot of churches in similar circumstances, particularly in small mid-western towns and rural areas. The folks have just moved on....

Thanks! I see too many old things torn down. Some with no attempt to salvage or re-purpose any of the materials. Such a waste.

Thanks! I was out for a ride and managed to show up at a good time for the lighting and clouds.

The roof of this building looks very good - someone must be willing to put money into preservation.
