I only had a moment to step inside the Pisgah Presbyterian chapel yesterday after the Pisgah Academy. Marcie had arranged the shoot, but little did we know that the church was having a new PA system installed at the same time. Still, I popped off one or two, and met the extremely kind church secretary, Lynn, who invited me back. I’ve been hoping to see the inside of the church for some time. I photographed the adjoining grounds back in 2013, and in 2014 I got a distant shot of the outside from the cemetery. It’s a very, very small chapel that seats 174 if they’re packed in just so. Like most churches on the Western frontier, the original log chapel burned. This chapel was erected in 1812. It was remodeled in 1868 and remains pretty much as it was since that time. It’s an adorable place steeped in Bluegrass history just the way I like ’em. I look forward to going back.
