Old Berea Christian Church

DSC_7052

The present Old Berea Christian Church was built in 1856 under the supervision of Samuel Alsop. The church is a fine example of Virginia's Gothic Revival period architecture, and is exceptionally well-preserved, even though it was scarred by shots and shells during the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House in 1864. There is a cemetery located in the rear dating back to the pre- Civil War period.
