Country Churches: The Dunker Church

"Because the Dunker church was a prominent battlefield landmark, its reconstruction was a long term goal of the National Park Service. In 1960 The State of Maryland provided the NPS with $35,000 to reconstruct the church.
The present Dunker Church, standing on the original site was completed late in 1961. Many of the original salvaged materials were purchased from Mr. Boyer and are now integral parts of the reconstructed church. These include 3,000 bricks, door and window frames, some flooring, and a number of benches." Continued.
