Smallest church in 48 states

April 19, 2010

On Sunday, we took a trip over to Blackwater Falls State Park in Davis, WV.  Before you get to the park, there is a cute little church that we stopped in to visit.

After we got back home, the kids asked if it was really the smallest church.  A quick Google search shows that there are indeed smaller churches than Our Lady of the Pines, but it was nice to visit anyway.  Here is a picture of the church…and that small building behind it?..well, that’s the post office.  😉

Here’s the front view of the “mailing office” for Sliver Lake, WV.  The kids were hoping that it was open and we could see inside, but then they remembered that there is “no Post on Sunday.”  (name that movie…)

Inside the church, we found 6 small pews that each seat two people and a beautiful altar.  I bought a small card that gives all the details about when the items inside were made (all are handmade).  It’s lovely to see the dedication and care that have gone into keeping the building and grounds kept up.  Everything was beautifully maintained.

One last picture, just for comparison…the church next to our van.

Next up…our visit at the falls…(but we really didn’t see the falls.  LOL)

    Haven’t been to BFSP in about 10+ years. Thank you for a trip down memory lane. Excited to see more pictures.
