Village Church

While exploring the Augusta wine country I drove through the little village of Femme Osage and spotted this church. There is a creek that runs in front of the church so to get there you have to cross an old narrow bridge or cross a low water bridge.

Another interesting doorway in Charleston. Note this one does not seem to go into the dwelling but into a courtyard.
