The Oldest Church In West Virginia Dates Back To The 1700s And You Need To See It
The Mountain State is rich with places of worship. Throughout history, the church has not only been a place of worship, but also a sacred spot where neighbors come together as whole to congregate, to celebrate, and to mourn. The oldest such church in the entire state dates all the way back to three years after the end of the American Revolution. It was built in 1786 – and still stands!
