Country Churches: Saint Patrick's

My interest in Cecil County's "Northwest Barrens," brought us once again to the area, with some pleasing photographic results, and a slightly better understanding of the area. The area reminds me of one of those places described in the book "Gone to Croatan: Origins of North American Dropout Culture," but somebody will need to do a lot more research to see if that is truly the case.

Anyway, today's pictures are from Saint Patrick's Church near Pilot Town, Maryland - well not the real Pilot, which is under water, but the part that remains. The church was built in 1819 by Irish immigrants, judging by the headstones.
